Director: Rudy Valdez, R

At the age of 5, in his native Mexico, he learned to play the violin. At 8, he developed a lifelong love for the guitar. At 14, he honed those guitar virtuoso skills and his performance style as a street musician, starting his own band while still a teenager. And at 22—just before his first album was released to acclaim—Carlos Santana became one of the major discoveries of Woodstock in 1969. The electric documentary Carlos utilizes new interviews with Santana and extraordinary, never-before-seen archival footage. “Rudy Valdez’s documentary presents Santana’s life and career in a straightforward way, but that doesn’t explain why the film is so enthralling.” —Variety
