Musical redemption - non-confrontational look at the beauty of the melting pot
21 October 2020 | by nlynn17See all my reviews

Linda Ronstadt and Jackson Browne join Eugene Rodriguez and Los Cenzontles (the mockingbirds) on a bus trip to perform in Linda's grandfather's home town, Banamichi, Mexico. Los Cenzontles is a group of young Mexican - American musicians who uphold and transmit the authentic, traditional music of Ronstadt's childhood.

This is a beautiful, hopeful, thoughtful, important film about equity, transmission of culture through the arts, and insight into what it means to be an immigrant in the US today. Without being dogmatic, negative, or overtly political, producer/director James Keach opens the door for us to hear firsthand experiences from Mexican-American immigrants. In addition to hearing their amazing music, we see and feel their dignity, traditions, smiles and tears.
