Native Panamanian singer, actor, politician, and lawyer (with a Harvard degree in International Law) Ruben Blades performs, talks, and travels around in this documentary on his triumphant return to Panama City. Alternating between interviews with Blades and segments from his music (with his band Seis del Solar and singer Linda Ronstadt) that illustrate his positions on the values of traditional Latin culture, director Robert Mugge has fashioned an entertaining and illuminating documentary. (Blades ran for president of Panama in 1994 and came in second.) ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
