Carlos Santana shares trailer for Carlos documentary

Carlos Santana is sharing a video trailer for the upcoming global cinema premiere of “Carlos”, a new documentary about his life and legendary career.

Directed by Rudy Valdez and set to premiere in theaters next month, the film combines new interviews with Santana and his family; extraordinary, never-before-seen archival footage, including home videos recorded by Santana himself; concert footage; behind-the-scenes moments; interviews with music industry luminaries and collaborators, such as Clive Davis, Rob Thomas and more.

An influential early believer in the guitarist was legendary San Francisco-based promoter Bill Graham.

“Do you believe in magic?” says Santana in the preview clip. “They said, ‘hey, we want to take you to this place, it’s called The Fillmore. Nothing better.’ Bill Graham came to me and says ‘You’re going to open up for The Who, Steve Miller and Howlin’ Wolf.’

“Magic is when you command the elements to capture people’s hearts.”

“Carlos” will launch in theaters with a three-day premiere event “Carlos: The Santana Journey Global Premiere.” On Saturday, September 23, Sunday, September 24, and Wednesday, September 27 only, screenings include the Carlos documentary plus exclusive introductory content featuring Santana and director Valdez (The Sentence, We Are: The Brooklyn Saints).

Following the premiere screenings, “Carlos” will begin its general theatrical release on Friday, September 29.
