Event Description

A multifaceted, lyrical portrait of famed Chilean singer and folklorist Violeta Parra, interweaving scenes from her life to trace her evolution from impoverished child to international sensation and Chile's national hero. Parra's revival of traditional Chilean music galvanized the socially and politically activist Latin American folk music movement known as "nueva canción," and her iconic, unforgettable songs permeate the film. Spanish with English subtitles; 110 minutes. 

Introduction and discussion by Dr. Tey Diana Rebolledo, Distinguished Professor Emerita with the Department of Spanish & Portuguese and faculty affiliate with the Latin American & Iberian Institute at UNM, and authority on Violeta Parra's work.
