La Bamba is a 1987 American biographical film written and directed by Luis Valdez. The movie narrates the true story of Ritchie Valens, a young rock and roll singer who tragically died in a plane crash at age 17. The film follows Ritchie from his days in Pacoima, California where he and his family make a meager living working on farms to his rise as a star. The film also focuses on Ritchie’s friendship and rivalry with his older brother Bob Morales and his relationship with Donna Ludwig, his girlfriend.
