Chavela, GFT, 28 September, 2017



Co-directors Catherine Gund and Daresha Kyi interweave candid stories told by Mexican ranchera singer Chavela Vargas and those closest to her in this multi-faceted biographical film. An incomparable performer, she was also a lesbian woman who defied all social expectations, revolutionising music and challenging the stereotypical macho and hetero cultural norms of the times. This intimate film beautifully captures Chavela’s fearless life, powerful artistry, and passionate love affairs, including her romance with the equally magnificent Frida Kahlo. In partnership with Scottish Documentary Institute. 

Followed by a Q&A with director Catherine Gund.
