We Won’t Shut Up, a Film for Freedom
Claudia Arribas Villà, Violeta Octavio Roca, Carlos Juan Martínez
The lyrics of Pablo Hasel, Valtònyc and Elgio have not only been condemned by an unjust and vindictive judicial system, but have also been victims of a media tactic that presents them as criminals and "enemies of democracy". This film addresses their cases from a personal and artistic perspective, showing the experiences that have led them to be political victims of reprisals as well as the consequences that this repression has affected their lives, whether due to disqualification, exile or prison. Various musicians and singers, who are also important characters in the documentary, recreate some of the condemned lyrics and create new versions of various musical styles: Ana Tijoux, Yolanda Sey, Albert Pla and Za, among many others.
