  9. Pachamanka-Singing for Freedom

    Markus Toth / Documentary / Austria / 2017 / Documentary, Music, Society, Spanish / 67 mins
    On the surface, "Pachamanka- Singing for Freedom“ is a documentary about a Chilean music band recording their new CD, along with the personal stories of different band members. Upon closer inspection, it is also a story about staying true to one's political and cultural principals like solidarity and equality while trying to survive as a musician. Formed during the dictatorship of Pinochet, Pachamanka's initial goal was to fight the regime and communicate the situation in Chile through music. After facing prison time and persecution, some band members were forced to leave the Chile and continue their musical journey in Uruguay, Spain, and finally Austria. The freedom that comes with being a musician became overshadowed by financial problems and the pressure to become a commercial act.
