Portrait of a popular artist.

Abstract in spanish

To speak of Jorge Farías is to speak of the "Most Popular Singer of Valparaiso", as he defines himself and as he is culturally and socially endorsed by the different people who inhabit this shoreline. Heir to a childhood that he prefers to keep in oblivion, his existence has grown with singing, from the time of the carnival singer to that of the great stages, the tours in Chile and abroad, the participation in the film "Valparaiso, mi amor", of the master Aldo France, the memories of that bohemia that today is only past, the stumbling and the alcohol, the laughing memories, the anecdotes, the dreams, the small traits that make up a life. A little of this is what we invite you to know through this documentary, with the humble intention of contributing to the rescue and preservation of our most alive cultural heritage, the one created and shaped by the very human beings that inhabit our territory.
