VIOLETA WENT TO HEAVEN
Andrés Wood / Chile / 2011 / 110 min
Spanish with English subtitles.
The film tells the story of famed
Chilean singer and folklorist Violeta
Parra, tracing her evolution from
impoverished child to international
sensation and Chile’s national hero,
while capturing the swirling intensity
of her inner contradictions, fallibilities,
and passions. Her achievements are
suspended in a passionate journey
with the characters that made her
dream, laugh and cry.

composer and interpreter Carlos Salvo
