Singing Our Way to Freedom

SYNOPSES
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. From his humble beginnings as a farmworker in rural California to the dramatic moment when he received one of his nation’s highest musical honors at the Library of Congress, this character-driven film reminds us that the battle for freedom has to be fought anew by every generation.
