Singing Our Way to Freedom. 2018.

This feature length documentary film is a multilayered portrait of Ramon “Chunky” Sanchez – musician, composer and community activist from San Diego. From the early days of the Chicano civil rights movement alongside Cesar Chavez through today’s immigrants’ rights protests, Chunky has used music to energize our political imagination in the struggle for social justice. Our film examines how Chunky’s inspiring career as a musician is interwoven with the broader history of the Chicano movement, a cultural movement nearly forgotten today. A portrait of one charismatic musician and activist allows us to revisit this pivotal era in American history and to provoke dialogue about the many hurdles that had to be overcome to gain equal rights for Mexican Americans.  Duration: 87 mins. Paul Espinosa, Director,  and Professor Estevan Azcona, will be present for a discussion after the film.
