“As long as we sing his songs, as long as his courage can inspire us to greater courage, Víctor Jara will never die.” – Pete Seeger

“Joan Jara describes with great power and clarity the aspirations of the people of Chile and the horror which descended upon them in 1973.” – Harold Pinter
Víctor Jara was a Chilean poet, singer, theatre director, and communist activist. He was tortured and killed after the coup of 11 September 1973, which overthrew the Salvador Allende government. This is the story of his remarkable life, told lovingly by his wife and fellow artist.
“Our path is lit by twin beacons of courage and love and light, Víctor and Joan Jara.” – Roger Waters
