For the second year in a row, The Hollywood Theatre and Latino Network are proud to present Ollin: Social Justice Film Series, a series exploring the social justice issues of today.

The 2018 series “Nuestra Voz” features three films about prominent women who continue to shape and inspire our world today: Musicians Selena Quintanilla and Mercedes Sosa and artist Frida Kahlo.

MONDAY, JULY 23 — MERCEDES SOSA

Director Rodrigo H. Vila’s 2013 film is a documentary chronicling the life and influence of Argentine singer Mercedes Sosa. Drawing upon a rich background of Argentine folk music, Sosa was one of the primary artists to give rise to “nueva canción,” a social movement and musical genre which gave voice and empowered many people across Latin America. Together with her family, Sosa toured with world in the 60s and 70s performing her music. Despite her international success, Sosa was exiled from Argentina by a hostile military dictatorship.
Heralded as the «voice of the voiceless ones,» Sosa successfully produced over four decades of work which still inspire causes today. Directed by Rodrigo H. Vila, the film features Chico Buarque, Elba Bustelo, and David Byrne.

Proceeds go towards Latino Network's advocacy programs.
