Violeta Went to
Heaven (Spanish: Violeta se fue a los cielos) is a 2011 Chilean biopic
about singer and folklorist Violeta Parra, directed by Andrés Wood. The
film is based on a biography, written by Ángel Parra, Violeta's son with Luis Cereceda Arenas.

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. - Kino Lorber
