Austria/Cuba/El Salvador /2014 / 87 min Spanish with English subtitles
Roque Dalton (1935-75) is the most important poet of El Salvador. His life is an adventure story, his poetry an exciting shower of sparks in the realm between political utopia and sensuality, between revolutionary beliefs and lust for heresy. Sentenced to death by the Salvadorian dictatorships for subversive activities, he managed to escape execution twice. He was the illegitimate son of a Salvadorian nurse and a North American millionaire, a descendant of the legendary Dalton brothers of the American west. he lived in Mexico and Prague and wrote most of his works exiled in Cuba. He helped establish one of his country's first guerrilla organizations and was murdered by a militarist faction of his own organization under circumstances which still remain unclear
