Kymberli Frueh, SVP of programming and content acquisitions for Trafalgar Releasing said: "Carlos Santana is among the elite musicians who has transcended decades and generations. From his performance at Woodstock to his '90s epic album 'Supernatural' —this documentary delves into his journey of becoming one of our greatest guitar legends. We are thrilled to be a part of this global moment in cinemas where fans can experience his life story and music together.”

With "Carlos", Valdez creates an intimate, rich documentary about a man whose sound casts a spell on fans who love — as one of Santana's famous titles says — "how his rhythm goes."

A music industry legend for 50 years and a 10-time Grammy-winning global sensation, Santana continues to be one of the music world's premiere artists, blending jazz, blues, and the Mariachi sound with a rock 'n' roll spirituality and a sense of connection to music's primal connection to our deepest emotions.

Jointly financed by Sony Music Entertainment and Imagine Documentaries, "Carlos" is produced by Sara Bernstein and Justin Wilkes along with Lizz Morhaim and executive produced by Academy Award-winning producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard for Imagine Documentaries. Leopoldo Gout, Ashley Kahn and Sam Pollard also serve as producers. Meredith Kaulfers is the co-executive producer for Imagine Documentaries and Michael Vrionis serves as an executive producer. Tom Mackay and Richard Story are executive producers for Sony Music Entertainment.

We are thrilled to partner with Sony Pictures Classics to present the special global premiere of CARLOS, an electric new documentary chronicling Carlos Santana's life from a 14-year-old street musician to a 10-time Grammy-winning global sensation.

Be among the first to see the film when “CARLOS: The Santana Journey Global Premiere” comes to cinemas worldwide on Sep 23, 24 and 27, along with an exclusive introduction featuring Santana and director Rudy Valdez.
