Carlos Satana recently collaborated with Imagine Documentaries to chronicle the narrative of his life and career in the documentary ‘Carlos,’ which debuted at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.

The singer explained to UCR how he wished to tell his narrative, saying: “I didn’t want it to be this poor little thing, another victim mentality, and this predictable, pathetic human being who people can’t wait for to die so he doesn’t have to suffer any longer.” “I believe we’ve had enough of that.” In a 2000 interview with Rolling Stone, the singer confessed that he was abused as a child for two years.

It made waves when Santana reportedly told People that he has forgiven his childhood abuser. The musician explained how he healed himself and came to terms with his predicament, saying:

“There’s a proverb that goes, ‘Hurt people hurt people.’ It’s my sorrow. It happened to me.

But if you open your hands and let it go, you no longer feel it.” So, when it came to making ‘Carlos,’ the singer told UCR that he wanted to steer clear of the ‘victim’ mentality.

Instead, he wanted to impart what he had learnt via letting go and his various life experiences by saying: “[I wanted ‘Carlos’] to represent triumph, glory, and victory to God.” I want this to be about all of the ingredients, components, and elements, especially the discipline and education my mother instilled in my head and heart so that I don’t disappoint myself, my family, or the people.”
