PDXLAFF Double Feature: Hasta La Raiz/Tin Tan


HASTA LA RAÌZ documents the creative process behind the sixth album from Mexican singer Natalia Lafourcade, from the production and recording of the songs, to their first performances in front of an audience. Natalia Lafourcade is a Mexican pop-rock singer and songwriter who, since her debut in 2003, has been one of the most successful singers in Latin America.

HASTA LA RAÌZ es un documental en forma de diario, que devela, desde una mirada muy íntima y personal, todo el proceso de realización del sexto álbum de Natalia Lafourcade. Lo que comenzó como un disco de desamor y desahogo, se convirtió en una obra que conectó con miles de personas. 

TIN TAN tells the story of Germán Cipriano Gómez Valdés Castillo, a young radio announcer from Cuidad Juárez who succeeds in drawing attention to the pachuco movement through his character Tin Tan, and lays the groundwork for a new form of binational and mass linguistic expression: Spanglish. Starting in the 1940s, he became a leading figure in theater and film on the American Continent. Singled out by critics as a destroyer of the language, he quickly won the approval of the public. His ability to improvise revolutionized the film industry during the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema. 

Germán Cipriano Gómez Valdés Castillo, un joven locutor de Ciudad Juárez, consigue atraer la atención hacia el movimiento pachuco a través de su personaje “Tin Tan” sentando las bases para una nueva forma de expresión lingüística masiva y binacional: el spanglish. Esta película muestra la historia de Tin Tan contada como nunca antes se había contado.
