Checkpoint Rock

Spain 2009, Documentary

This is a trip through a place which the world is always looking at but which we know almost nothing about. What music provides this mythical place with a voice and melody? Who are its most representative musicians and how do they live? What do they think about the place that they have to live in and how do they deal with it through their ly-rics and their melodies?
