CARLOS (2023)

Special Presentation. Pre-recorded introduction by Carlos Santana

At the age of five, in his native Mexico, he learned to play the violin; at eight, he developed a lifelong love for the guitar; at 14, he honed those guitar virtuoso skills and his performance style working a street musician, starting his own band while still a teenager; and at 22 — just before his first album was released to widespread acclaim — Carlos Santana became one of the major discoveries of Woodstock, anchoring the famous music festival's second afternoon on August 16, 1969. A music industry legend for 50 years and a 10-time Grammy Award®-winning global sensation, as well as a recipient of a Kennedy Center Honor and a Billboard Century Award, Santana remains one of the music world's premier artists, blending jazz, blues and the Mariachi sound with a rock 'n' roll spirituality and a primal connection to humanity's deepest emotions. This electric documentary features new interviews with Santana and his family alongside extraordinary, never-before-seen archival footage, including home video recordings by Santana himself, concert footage and behind the-scenes moments. Emmy Award®-winning director Rudy Valdez (THE SENTENCE; THROUGH OUR EYES; WE ARE: THE BROOKLYN SAINTS) creates an intimate, rich documentary about a man whose sound casts a spell on fans who love — as one of Santana's famous titles says — "how his rhythm goes." (Note adapted from Sony Pictures Classics.) Official Selection, 2023 Tribeca Film Festival. DIR/PROD Rudy Valdez; PROD Sara Bernstein, Leopoldo Gout, Ashley Kahn, Lizz Morhaim, Sam Pollard, Justin Wilkes. U.S., 2023, color, 87 min. In English. RATED R
