After his only son is murdered – collateral damage in the Mexican drug war – a mystic poet becomes a modern-day Odysseus, launching an international crusade to save his country before returning to his hometown. EL POETA reinterprets the “hard news” horror story of the Mexican drug war as a deeply personal, poetic and even hopeful one, tracing Sicilia’s path from poet and father to movement leader and international symbol of grief and redemption.
EL POETA is a co-production of Latino Public Broadcasting and is supported by the Angelica Foundation, BRITDOC, ITVS, and the Berkeley Film Foundation.
