ROCK 'N' ROLL IS NOT DEAD
O.V. in Spanish and English subtitled in Spanish
Children of two rock legends from Seville, Sammy Taylor and Charlie Cepeda had a childhood marked by extravagance and excesses. Sammy in the UK and Australia (without knowing anything about his father, the legendary Silvio), Charlie in Seville. This journey follows their lives from their childhood until their meeting, an explosive connection from which came the band Los Labios, with collaborators such as Bunbury, Kiko Veneno, Jarabe de Palo, Chrissie Hynde, Jackson Browne and Raimundo Amador, to whom Lenny Kravitz offered his studio run by producer Craig Ross. This film, which follows the band for four years, is a wild rock'n'roll story filled with drugs, kidnappings, suicide attempts, gurus and sudden fame.
