***** Le film retrace la vie et le travail du musicien
Victor Jara, assassiné lors du coup d'État au Chili, en
1973. Durant toute sa vie, il fut révéré pour sa
contribution au renouveau de la musique et des arts
traditionnels latino-américains. À sa mort, il devint une
source d'inspiration à travers le monde pour le
rétablissement de la démocratie dans son pays. De ses
origines rurales à ses derniers moments au Chile Stadium de
Santiago, les séquences originales de ses concerts révèlent
son charisme et son talent. Des interviews de ses
contemporains - dont celui de sa veuve, Joan, qui n'a cessé
de travailler pour maintenir son oeuvre vivante -
rappellent la triste et effroyable histoire du Chili à
cette époque. On écoute toujours Victor Jara : c'est la
preuve que l'assassinat d'un homme ne peut balayer ni ses
idées, ni sa contribution artistique.

The film focus on the life and work of musician Victor Jara
who was murdered during the military coup in Chile 1973.
During his lifetime he was revered for his contribution to
revival of traditional Latin American music and arts in
general. After his death he became an inspiration
throughout the world for the reestablishment of democracy
in his country. The film traces Jara's life from his rural
upbringing to his last moment in the Chile Stadium in
Santiago. Original footage of him singing and playing
reveals his charisma and talent. Interviews with
contemporaries recall the sad and chilling history of
Chile's tainted past. Also included is an interview with
his widow, Joan, who has worked ceaselessly to keep his
artistic work alive. Victor Jara's continuing eminence has
demonstrated that the killing of a human being cannot wipe
out its ideas or its creative contribution.

***** October 8, 1999 on Democracy NOW!
Story: DOCUMENTARY ON LEGENDARY CHILEAN PROTEST SINGER
VICTOR JARA, KILLED BY PINOCHET COUP

Last September 16th was the 25th anniversary of the death
of legendary Chilean protest singer Victor Jara, who was
tortured and killed by the Chilean military days after the
coup. Jara had been arrested on the day of the coup and
taken to the massive stadium in Santiago known as the
Estadio Chile with thousands of other political detainees.
He was killed in or near the stadium, and his body was
dumped on the street. His widow Joan Jara, who was tipped
off that her husband had been killed, eventually identified
him in one of the city's morgues. On that 25th anniversary
of her husband's death, Joan Jara spoke with Democracy Now!

Guest:

Joan Jara, widow of Victor Jara. Speaking from Santiago de
Chile on September 16, 1973, on the 25th anniversary of the
killing of her husband.
