¡HAY CINE! “CHAVELA”
Wed Nov 15
doors open at 6:30, film starts at 7pm
Come see this FREE feature documentary about legendary Mexican songstress Chavela Vargas. Not well-known outside of Mexico, you will wonder why you’ve never heard of her once you learn about her outspoken and pioneering influence in music, culture, sexuality, fashion, and feminism. Since she was known for wearing traditional Mexican ponchos, we invite everyone to celebrate by wearing their favorite poncho (traditional or not!)
We will even have some ponchos available for sale, selected by Susie Thorp from Elemental Treasures/The Artful Bookstore.
Light refreshments available.
After the film stay for a live remote Q&A with co-director Daresha Kyi, moderated by ¡Hay Festival! Film Curator, Christy Addis-Gutierrez.
Thanks to the use of the screen and funding support from Latina Dance Project
