The highly anticipated documentary, Carlos: The Santana Journey, directed Rudy Valdez, delves into the life story of legendary guitarist Carlos Santana. The film takes viewers on a captivating journey from Santana’s childhood in Mexico to his groundbreaking performance at Woodstock in 1969, and his eventual resurgence in popularity during the ’90s.

Santana himself expressed his desire for the documentary to showcase the principles and influences of his upbringing, emphasizing a story of triumph, confidence, and vitality. With interviews featuring Santana throughout his career, along with never-before-seen footage from his personal archive, this documentary promises to be a treat for Santana fans.

Unfortunately, the film is not currently available for streaming on Netflix or any other online platforms. However, it will have a limited release in select theaters for the “global premiere” on September 23, 24, and 27, followed a wider release on September 29.

While the digital release date is yet to be announced, it is highly likely that Carlos: The Santana Journey will eventually make its way to Netflix. As a Sony Pictures Classics movie, there is a strong possibility that it will join the streamer’s collection. However, based on the release pattern of previous Sony Pictures Classics films, such as Living, it may take several months before the documentary becomes available on Netflix, possibly around March or April 2024.

For fans eager to experience the documentary without delay, watching it in theaters upon its release is the best option. Tickets for the “global premiere” can be found at, providing a chance to witness the incredible journey of Carlos Santana on the big screen.
