Music-themed docu-series “ReMastered” returns to Netflix later this week with “Massacre at the Stadium” on January 11th. Track 4 investigates Chilean artist Victor Jara who was murdered along with 3,000 other people in Chile Stadium. The documentary is directed by B.J. Perlmutt (Havana Motor Club).
Known as Chile’s Bob Dylan, Victor Jara was a fearless political singer who led the historic Nueva Cancion folk movement in Chile during the CIA-backed Pinochet dictatorship. Pinochet’s regime eventually would torture and kill Jara – along with 3000 others – in Chile Stadium. The Chilean army official who was found responsible for pulling the trigger and ending Jara’s life is living as a free man in Florida. He is convinced he can prove his innocence…and that’s where this story begins.
