<< Return to All Films | Sinopsis en Español

Alive with the sounds and energies of the Salsa Capital of the World, ¡QUE VIVA LA MUSICA! is the unforgettable story of Maria del Carmen (Paulina Dávila), daughter of “La Sexta”, one of Cali, Colombia’s wealthiest enclaves, who quickly comes to the realization that she’s no longer willing or able to play the soul-stifling roles that have so far defined her young life. Setting out to test her boundaries, Maria escapes her world of privilege within the gritty streets and barrios of Cali, diving headfirst into the hedonistic world of drugs, sex and violence and finding her limits and herself in this vibrant, visceral ode to music, youth and the class-defined realities of life in Colombia.

Based on the generation-defining novel by Andrés Caicedo, director Carlos Moreno (DOG EAT DOG, Telemundo’s PABLO ESCOBAR, EL PATRON DEL MAL) brilliantly captures the essence of this classic coming-of-age novel, updated for an entirely new generation. Brash, colorful and boasting an incredible soundtrack filled with cuts from legendary salsa label Fania, ¡QUE VIVA LA MUSICA! comes alive with harshness and beauty that few films dare.

Título: Que viva la música

Que viva la música es la inolvidable historia de María del Carmen, oriunda de “La Sexta”, uno de los enclaves más adinerados de Cali, quien rápidamente entiende que ya no quiere o puede desempeñar los roles agobiantes en los que ha estado encasillada su joven vida. Basándose en la novela de Andrés Caicedo que definió una generación, el director Carlos Moreno (Perro come perro) captura brillantemente la esencia de esta clásica historia del pasaje a la adultez, renovándola para una generación completamente distinta. Colorida y chillona, y con el increíble fondo musical del legendario sello musical Fania, Que viva la música muestra una cruda belleza a la que pocos films se atreven.
