Reel To Reel: Los Tigres Del Norte At Folsom Prison

Featuring a Post-Screening Discussion with Los Tigres del Norte, music producer Gustavo Santaolalla, director Tom Donahue, and co-writer/producer Zach Horowitz

The legendary Los Tigres del Norte travels to Folsom Prison to perform for the inmates, fifty years after Johnny Cash played his historic concert there in 1968. The documentary capturing that visit, Los Tigres del Norte at Folsom Prison, is more than a concert film. It's a journey into the world of Latinx incarceration told through the songs of Los Tigres and interviews with Folsom's Latinx inmates. The multi-GRAMMY winning band is one of the most popular and influential artists in the history of Latin music. They have sold over 40 million albums, released more than 50 #1 singles, and placed more tracks on the “Hot Latin Songs Chart” than any other artist in history. Five decades into their career, they continue to sell out concerts across the U.S. and Latin America, earlier this year setting the all-time attendance record at the Houston Rodeo with over 75,500 people. Their music has always given a voice to the lost, forgotten, and powerless in their community, and their documentary's focus on the issue of Latino incarceration is particularly timely. The film will debut as a Netflix Original Documentary later this year for Hispanic Heritage Month. The soundtrack from the documentary is the first live album released from Folsom in 50 years, since Johnny Cash. 


The GRAMMY Museum is pleased to screen this documentary film ahead of its Netflix debut and host a panel discussion featuring Los Tigres del Norte, two-time Oscar-winning composer and eighteen-time Latin GRAMMY-winner Gustavo Santaolalla (who accompanied the band to Folsom and produced the music for the film and live album), Director Tom Donahue, and Co-Writer/Producer Zach Horowitz. The panel will be moderated by Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President & CEO of the Latin Recording Academy.


Please note that the documentary will be screened in Spanish with English subtitles and that some of the panel discussion may be in Spanish.
