Violeta Went to Heaven Trailer (2013)

Tracing the evolution of an iconic woman, from an impoverished childhood to international sensation, Violeta Went to Heaven captures the ups and downs of a life that both transformed and propelled Latin American music during the 20th century. The film also traces Violeta's many political struggles, including her work to protect indigenous cultures and her transformation into a political inspiration for millions of citizens in the continent. One of her most famous songs, "La Carta," was written in support of her brother's arrest and incorporated, like much of her work, indigenous rhythms. "Gracias a la Vida," considered by many her absolute masterwork, was covered by Mercedes Sosa, Joan Baez and many other artists across the globe; it continues to be one of the most covered songs in Latin America.
