Ruben Blades Is Not My Name

Benaim, Abner
Genre: 
Latin American icon Ruben Blades was at the center of the New York Salsa revolution in the 1970's. His socially charged lyrics and explosive rhythms brought Salsa music to an international audience. Blades has won 17 Grammys, acted in Hollywood, earned a law degree from Harvard and even run for President of his native Panama. Critically acclaimed director Abner Benaim takes us on a journey through Ruben's 50 year career, revealing that Ruben still has both musical and political ambitions. This is a film about a living legend and his struggle to come to terms with his legacy. Winner of an Audience Award at the SXSW Film Festival. Best Foreign Language Film nominee at the Palm Springs International Film Festival.
