VIOLETA WENT TO HEAVEN (VIOLETA SE FUE A LOS CIELOS)

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 while capturing the swirling intensity of her inner contradictions, fallibilities, and passions.

“Write as you like, use the rhythms that come out, try different instruments, sit at the piano, destroy the metric, shout instead of singing, blow your guitar and ring the horn. Hate mathematics, and love eddies. Creation is a bird without a flight plan, that will never fly in a straight line”
