50 Years of Chilean Nueva Canción Music
Join the Center for Latin American Studies, AZ Arts Live, and the Applied Intercultural Arts Research Program, for a screening of the documentary We’ll be Singing by September (2023, 90 mins) at the Center for Creative Photography Auditorium.
We’ll be Singing by September is a feature documentary exploring the history, development and transcendence of Chilean music during the socialist government of Salvador Allende. Throughout a series of interviews with the most prominent figures of the Nueva Canción Chilena, stop-motion animation and never before seen archival material, the film travels back to a time when music, creativity, social movements and political force aligned to give birth to an artistic revolution whose songs still resonate throughout the world. September 11 marks the 50th anniversary of the overthrow of Salvador Allende’s democratically-elected government by the military with the backing of the U.S. government.
Chilean singer, songwriter, and documentary producer, Nano Stern, will be introducing the film and conducting a Q&A session.
