Robert Mugge's portrait of actor, writer, attorney, activist, and Grammy Award winning world music artist Ruben Blades.

'Robert Mugge is a filmmaker with a music critic's sensibility. His good taste in subjects is matched by the subtle way in which he lets his movies reveal all the music that fits. The result is filmmaking that informs and entertains, and in the age of overblown music videos and the blatantly artful hard sell of music, Mugge's movies are a relief to watch. For salsa fans, THE RETURN OF RUBEN BLADES is a must-see. Politicos looking for a credible and humane view on the fire down below our borders, and people interested in the evolving dynamics of pop culture will likewise find engaging ideas and insights in Mugge's most recent effort...a refreshing portrait of an artist with a demonstrative grace and an irresistible beat. Listening to Blades discuss his work and then seeing him perform it onstage with his band is a lesson in humility, courage and musicianship. He's an immensely likeable person...a movie natural. What finally emerges in THE RETURN OF RUBEN BLADES is not really a platform for political insight or a profile of the heir apparent to the Latin music traditions of Machito, Tito Puente, and Ray Barretto. The film certainly is ripe with both, but there's a larger, more passionate statement to be made. Mugge's affectionate and smart movie is a vision shared by two soulmates who believe the world can be discovered and better understood through music.' - Martin Keller, TWIN CITIES READER (Minneapolis/St. Paul) Transferred to HD from the original 16mm film and lovingly restored.
