A documentary film by Charlie Williams.

The Mexican town of Paracho is unique in the world. For generations, the lives and livelihood of its people have been defined by the guitar.

/>Today, this one small town is home to more than four hundred individual craftsmen and no fewer than fifteen factories employing hundreds of workers, producing thousands of guitars a day.
/>
/>Beautifully shot by young British filmmaker Charlie Williams during Paracho's 2006 International Guitar Festival, this is a touching and insightful portrayal of a community striving to preserve its traditions and identity in the face of fierce competition from China and the Far East.
/>
/>'The Guitar Is Their Song' includes music by the town's talented young players and exclusive interviews and performances from world-famous classical guitarist John Williams.
