Violeta went to Heaven (2011) (Violeta se fue a los cielos) reconstructs the life story of Violeta Parra, a Chilean folk hero and artist. Violeta (played by actress/singer Francisca Gavilán) was a woman of intense and troubled contradictions, as well as a spirited genius. Directed by Chilean filmmaker Andrés Wood (Historias de fútbol, Machuca), this is a long-awaited feature film about a treasured, freewheeling artist who became an iconic voice of her country.
