In honor of Rita Guerrero, former lead singer of Mexico City’s La Santa Sabina, and of the band’s 30-year legacy, the Hola Mexico Film Festival presents a screening of “Rita, the Documentary.” The biopic combines stage footage, interviews and intimate behind-the-scenes moments in the life of the artist. Director Arturo Diaz depicts her contribution to the 1990s rock scene, her commitment to social justice as a Zapatista supporter and the strength of character that sustained Guerrero in her battle against breast cancer.
La Santa Sabina will perform live after the screening, followed by César “Vampiro” López, who will perform a set utilizing samples of Rita Guerrero’s voice.
Tickets: $25 / Running from May 31 through June 8, Hola Mexico is the largest Mexican film festival outside of Mexico. / More Information
