CHAVELA

“I live only for you and Diego.” — Frida Kahlo to Chavela Vargas

Costa Rica-born singer Chavela Vargas queered the Mexican ranchero patriarchy, and saw it all, played it all, lived it all—high and low.

Expect fireworks (and a devoted crowd) when Outfest screens the documentary CHAVELA (2017, directed by Catherine Gund and Daresha Kyi) on Saturday afternoon, July 8, at 4:15 pm.

DIRECTORS GUILD, 7920 Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles.
