Ambar Lucid shares documentary Llegaron Las Flores
Today, 18-year old Dominican/Mexican-American songstress Ambar Lucid shares a new documentary. Llegaron Las Flores (The Flowers Have Arrived), directed by Robert Semmer and inspired by her single “A Letter To My Younger Self,” the documentary chronicles the journey Ambar took to Mexico to reunite with her father after he was deported from The United States over a decade ago. Poignant and brave, her story is an essential testament to the impact of immigration laws and a mirror into the lives of the millions of Americans affected by them everyday. Ambar spoke to NPR on Latino USA about her experience and how the documentary came together.
The film originally premiered at a screening in Los Angeles hosted by Premier Music Group, Paradigm Talent Agency and UNICEF followed by a panel discussion on the current immigration system. Moderated by Doris Muñoz, music manager and organizer of the benefit concert series Solidarity for Sanctuary, the panel featured Chicanx indie star Cuco and Ambar herself discussing the effects of immigration policies today.
Ambar will be embarking on a series of tour dates across North America this Summer including a string of shows with Mon Lafarte and a performance at Central Park SummerStage with Kali Uchis, Helado Negro and Cuco as a part of the concert series Solidarity for Sanctuary.
