Singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez is profiled in this original documentary that mixes candid interviews with beautiful performances of his “nueva trova” classics.
Filmed during a tour of small barrios of his native Cuba, Rodríguez muses about the Cuban Revolution, his creative process, and his interest in collecting every live recording ever made of his songs.
A must-see for both seasoned fans and the uninitiated, Silvio Rodríguez, Ojalá shows why his lyrically ambitious and soulful songs have earned him comparisons to John Lennon and Bob Dylan.
