Violeta Went to Heaven (Violeta se fue a los cielos)

Like a Chilean Edith Piaf or Bob Dylan, Violeta Parra was a folk singer and pop culture icon whose songs, like "Gracias a la Vida," expressed the soul of her nation and protested social injustice. The film tells Parra's story, tracing her evolution from impoverished child to international sensation to Chile's national hero, while capturing the intensity of her inner contradictions, and passions.
