Film fans were excited to see this film made by CUEC graduate Arturo Díaz Santana, who was there to present his debut. The film took four years for him and his team to make and it began due to the relationship with Aldo Max Rodríguez, band member and Rita Guerrero’s life partner.
This tribute portrays her life through a chorus of voices, which include those of friends and family, the life of an admirable woman who became an icon of Mexican rock with her band Santa Sabina. It included a reconstruction of the musical and audiovisual archives that lead the spectator through the evolution of the singer’s career.
Aside from this, Rita Guerrero is recognized for her great historical commitment by being involved all her life in social movements such as the Zapata movement and the electoral left.
She left us too soon. At age 46, she died of breast cancer, but her voice and her music that marked a generation have been immortalized in this film dedicated to her memory, which is more alive than ever. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
