SONG THAT BURNS / CANCIÓN QUE QUEMA

Series: Portland Latin American Film Festival

Pascual Reyes, a TV and film score composer, and frontman of the 23-year-old Mexican Rock band San Pascualito Rey, will be in attendance to introduce the film and participate in a Q & A session after the documentary.


After several years, the cult Mexican rock band San Pascualito Rey returns to the studio to record its fourth album “Todo Nos Trajo Hasta Hoy.” It’s an ambitious gamble but the group is convinced that they are making the best album in its history. Song by song, the musicians expose their dreams and fears, falling into creative frictions and stretching their relationships to the limit. The San Pascualito Rey, creators of the ¨dark Guapachoso¨ sound, have literally left their skin on the asphalt, clinging to the hope of achieving something that seems impossible: to survive making their music.
