Opening Film

We hope to present marvelous stories by and for women, told by films that surpass the ordinary in style and technical aspects, and most importantly leave a lasting impression of content and insight on each member of the opening audience. Chavela tells such a marvelous story about an exceptional woman. The singing performances of Chavela Vargas affected her audience deeply, her lyrics were always full of profound messages. This is an autobiographical documentary rich in meaning as well as suspense. We believe this film will bless the entire audience with a unique and enjoyable opening night amidst its music and pictures, and that the life of Chavela Vargas, who never compromised and was still loved and respected, will help us all in finding and releasing our own female strength.
