[YO NO ME LLAMO RUBEN BLADES]

2018 Oscar® Selection, Panama

Latin American icon Rubén Blades was at the center of the New York Salsa revolution in the 1970s. His socially charged lyrics and explosive rhythms brought Salsa music to an international audience. He has won 17 Grammys®, acted in Hollywood, earned a law degree from Harvard and even run for president of his native Panama. This revealing portrait details Ruben's incredible 50-year career and his struggle to come to terms with his legacy. (Note adapted from SXSW Film Festival.)
