The brief but incandescent life of rock-and-roll trailblazer Ritchie Valens is immortalised in this enthralling biopic from another Mexican American icon, Luis Valdez, the father of Chicano cinema.

With sweetness and swagger, Lou Diamond Phillips embodies the 1950s California teenager who, forged by his fiercely supportive mother (Rosana DeSoto) and rebellious brother (Esai Morales), rises from his farm-working roots to chart-topping fame in the early days of rock-until one fateful night that haunts music history.

Propelled by a hip-shaking soundtrack featuring Los Lobos and Carlos Santana, La Bamba captures the electric vitality of an artist who bridged cultures to create his own American dream.

With a new 4K digital restoration, approved by director Luis Valdez, with 5.1 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack, La Bamba is released on Blu-ray 15th January 2024 from Spirit Entertainment as part of the Criterion Collection.
