"Donald Trump’s worst nightmare—a Mexican lesbian diva who can wring your very soul" (The Guardian).

The Costa Rica–born Mexican singer Chavela Vargas was a pioneer in music and life. Constructed around exclusive interviews and performance footage shot 20 years before her death, this biographical film explores the tequila-drinking, cigar-smoking singer’s journey from a 14-year-old runaway to world-renowned Grammy winner. (2017, dir. Catherine Gund and Daresha Kyi, 90 min.)

A Q&A with director Catherine Gund follows.
