"Violeta Went to Heaven," winner of Sundance's World Cinema Dramatic Jury Prize, will be released in North America by Kino Lorber later this year. The film, from Andrés Wood, tells the story of legendary musician, folksinger and poet Violeta Parra. A full synopsis and the trailer are below.
Kino Lorber's Richard Lorber states, "Although [Violeta] is not a household name here, her story is poignantly universal and enhanced by her phenomenal music throughout; she's sort of the Edith Piaf of Latin America. North America audiences on seeing Violeta will be in heaven too."
