The Resurrection of Victor Jara (FILM). A Project of Documentaries
Help us get Victor Jara's music and his story out to the world! (VIEW TRAILER BY CLICKING IMAGE ABOVE)
I began this long journey with my dear friend and director of The Resurrection of Victor Jara, the late John Travers, over 12 years ago. Along the way, we drew inspiration from the incredible people we met who were influenced by Victor's music, life story, and his commitment to a better world. Most heartening was their belief in us -- that we could actually do this against all odds. It kept us hopeful, and gave us confidence, often just when we needed it the most.
Through it all, we never lost faith in our dream, which we began to see was really the dream of many people worldwide -- to get this timely and necessary project completed, and tell this beautiful story of cultural rebirth of the beloved Chilean singer-songwriter Victor Jara.
Fast forward...we managed to get it done, thanks to generous help from many people. And the film has been honored with several awards, including Best Latin Documentary Film at the Sunscreen Film Festival in April, 2016. Most importantly, the film was officially selected to be screened at the prestigious 38th annual Festival of New Latin American Cinema (Habana Film Festival), held in Cuba in December, 2016.
And more recently, our film was officially accepted into the US-based Latino film festival, Cine Las Americas, one of the oldest of Latin American film festivals in North America. The film screened in May, 2017 at the 20th annual Cine Las Americas festival in Austin, Texas.
While we continue to gain acceptances in festivals worldwide, we lack funding to clear some of the remaining music and archival rights, needed for commercial release. The film is now within reach of worldwide commercial distribution. And you can help us clear this last hurdle!
