Cine En Sherman: Singing Our Way to Freedom
Singing Our Way to Freedom is a multilayered look at the life of San Diego Chicano musician, composer and community activist, Ramon “Chunky” Sanchez. Borrowing from musical traditions on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border, Chunky uses music and humor as powerful weapons in fighting for social justice. This character-driven film reminds us that the battle for freedom has to be fought anew by every generation.
