The dramatic true story of early Chicano rocker Ritchie Valens (aka Valenzuela) comes to life in this film written and directed by Luis Valdez. Lou Diamond Phillips shot to stardom with his portrayal of Valens, a one-time migrant worker who achieved nationwide fame as a rock ’n’ roll performer in the 1950s before his death in a plane crash with Buddy Holly. Valdez’s film offers a vivid portrayal of the largely unexplored history of Latino musicians and their contributions to the birth of rock ’n’ roll.

This event will take place outdoors at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes with live music, food, art vendors and more. Free event; no tickets required.
