Synopsis: A critically acclaimed and unconventional biopic of iconic Chilean folk singer, poet and artist Violeta Parra (1917-1967). Loosely based on Ángel Parra's memoirs of his mother Violeta Parra, 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, the "nueva canción," and became a reference for other Latin American artists committed to their national legacies.
