Information on the film follows:
Winner of the World Cinema Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Violeta Went to Heaven is a poignant biopic of Violeta Parra, a beloved Chilean singer/artist/folklorist who dedicated her life to documenting her country’s traditional music and promoting the “nueva canción,” or “new song,” movement that flourished in the 1950s and 1960s. The film doesn’t dwell on Parra’s leftish political leanings, but she became an icon of injustice across Latin America following her suicide in 1967. (110 mins., DCP)
