Film: Violeta Went to Heaven (Chile)

August 12
Bank of America Theatre 1701 4th Street SW
Albuquerque, 87102 United States

5:30 pm to 6:15 pm – Chilean folkloric music performed live
6:15 pm to 6:45 pm – “Violeta Parra in context” historical presentation by Dr. Carson Morris
7:00 pm – Film Screening

Andrés Wood’s Violeta Went to Heaven 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, and interweaving key set pieces from Parra’s life to capture the swirling intensity of her inner contradictions, fallibilities, and passions. Loosely based on Ángel Parra’s memoirs of his mother, the film offers a multi-faceted and lyrical portrayal of an influential figure in world music and complex cultural icon of Chile’s history. Violeta Parra’s revival of Chilean traditional music galvanized a socially and politically committed pan-Latin American folk music movement—“nueva canción“—and became a reference for other Latin American artists committed to their national legacies.

2011; Spanish with English subtitles; 110 minutes; not rated.

Free community event
