Musical pioneer, hard-drinking rebel, and queer icon, Chavela Vargas captured the heart of Frida Kahlo and the imagination of Pedro Almodovar, who frequently used her vocals in his films. Her scandalous reputation saw her blacklisted from the largest performance venues in Mexico for much of her career until she rightfully, and triumphantly, took the world by storm in her 70s, enjoying sold out shows in Spain and France – and finally, her native Mexico. Featuring interviews with key figures in her life, including film auteur Almodovar.’s interview with Cat Gund’s review of Chevala
