VIOLETA WENT TO HEAVEN

SUN, SEP 15 / 3 pm
DIR: ANDRÉS WOOD
2011 | CHILE, ARGENTINA, BRAZIL | 110 MIN
Spanish & French w/English subtitles

The extraordinary story of the iconic Chilean poet, musician and folk singer Violeta Parra, whose songs have become hymns for all Latina Americans and who was integral to the development of the Chilean “nueva canción” (new song) movement that used music as a tool for social change.

Director Andrés Wood (Machuca) traces the intensity and explosive vitality of her life, from her impoverished orgins to international fame, her defense of indigenous cultures and devotion to her art.

Reviews

"Indispensably supported by Miguel Ioan Littín's exquisite photography, Mr. Wood has created a poignant portrait of an artist unable to escape the stamp of her class or the burdens of aging. The grant exhibition tent she erects on a hilltop becomes, in the end, an apt metaphor for dashed dreams, its canvas unable to keep out the rain and its empty seats unable to turn back time." - Jeanette Catsoulis, NY Times
