TE RECUERDO VICTOR JARA @ Cinélatino (25/03/2014) 21:00

Concert and film viewing around Chilean singer Victor Jara.

As part of Cinélatino 26th Rencontres de Toulouse, the ARCALT (Association Rencontres Cinémas d'Amérique Latine de Toulouse) organises this event as a tribute to Chilean singer Victor Jara (1932-1973) murdered during the 11th September 1973 coup.

Poet, theatre director and folk singer, Jara was an ardent supporter of president Allende who was overthrown by Augusto Pinochet and his military dictatorship. Victor Jara was tortured and shot to death as an activist for "Unidad Popular", the socialist party then democratically elected. On the agenda of this event, an exclusive concert proposing various works of the singer: the creation "September 11th... 1973, te recuerdo Victor Jara" will be performed live as an accompaniment to the film "Victor Jara, siempre presente" by Joaquin Rivera Riffo, Fabio Christini and German Vidal.
