Follow Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra founder/conductor Arturo O'Farrill to the most remote regions of Veracruz, Mexico, where he meets and jams with the masters of son jarocho, a 300-year-old style of folk music rooted in African, Indigenous and Spanish traditions.

After Arturo's inspiring journey to a place where time seems to stands still, he and his orchestra join the masters at the border between the United States and Mexico for a son jarocho music and dance festival called Fandango Fronterizo (founded by Jorge Francisco Castillo). The festival takes place simultaneously on both sides of the border transforming this object that divides two into one.

With a poetic musical approach inspired by the son jarocho tradition, Varda Bar-Kar's film reveals a Mexico seldom depicted in cinema and delves into the current mass human migrations spurred by violence, poverty, and corruption.

This film is available to stream from September 29 - October 1.
