Film: Violeta Went to Heaven

May 2, 2013 @ 7:20 pm - 12:00 am


Chilean singer, artist and musician Violeta Parra was a gifted and passionate force of nature. When she died in 1967, she left behind a musical legacy of lyrical love songs, powerful pieces in defense of the oppressed and political calls to action.

In the new biopic Violeta Went To Heaven, director Andres Wood (Machuca) and actress Francisca Gavilan bring this cultural icon to life through all of the intensity and explosive vitality of her life, from her humble origins to international fame, her defense of indigenous cultures and devotion to her art.
Violeta Went To Heaven is based on the memoirs of her son and a 1962 television interview Violeta gave.
