EL POETA is an intimate portrait of renowned Mexican poet Javier Sicilia who, in the wake of his 24-year-old son’s brutal murder last year, ignited a mass movement against the horrific Mexican drug war. EL POETA traces Sicilia’s path from poet/philosopher and father to national symbol of protest, grief and redemption.
