The film features interviews collected throughout 15 years with Latin American musicians and rock stars (Andrés Calamaro, Pappo, Pity Álvarez, and Charly García, among others) who talk about their experiences in a meeting between artists and audiences.
Argentinian music festivals turned out to be essential for the education of generations that were born by the warmth of rock and roll. In that scenario, Cosquín Rock established itself as one of the most popular, solid, and prevailing platforms in the country. A birthplace for adventure, Cosquín Rock made Pappo nervous about Divididos’ backline, matched Charly García with Pity Álvarez (imagine what that dressing room was like!), made thousands vibrate to the sound of Las Pelotas, León Gieco, and Babasónicos, and moved everyone with L. A. Spinetta honoring Gustavo Cerati. The documentary tells the story of the festival, but also zooms in the intimacy of the magic and mysterious world of the local rock scene. Among the surprises featured in this film, il cappa bianca José Palazzo, the event’s mentor and endless fuel-pump, reveals himself as a magnetic storyteller. HP
