Who is the Captain and why is his word important? Author of more than 40 comparsas and chirigotas, including Los Yesterday, Juan Carlos Aragуn was a writer, carnival author and professor of philosophy. And his lyrics were also pure philosophy, which often sounded in the voices of the most admired artists in our country. His death unleashed an unusual tsunami in Andalusia that led to an explosion of love, despite the fact that he also aroused much hatred in life. Captain's Word is not just the posthumous portrait of a genius like Juan Carlos Aragуn. It is talking about the Carnival of Cбdiz and its recent history, deeply marked by this author who disappeared prematurely, unexpectedly and silently. Brave, critical and self-critical, his irony and his poetic depth managed to cross the subgenre of the carnival songs and mark a whole generation of Spanish singer-songwriters. Vanessa Martнn, Manuel Carrasco, India Martнnez and El Kanka, among others, review their work in the film, reaffirming the idea that Aragуn, alias Captain Veneno, traveled far beyond the walls of Cбdiz. Captain's Word starts from the mainstream to twist it. A necessary document, built with the testimony of those who knew and admired him, essential to understand a culture and a society, a person and a character. As light as resounding, and as unknown as influential.
