Besides the movie tell us a summary of Violeta Parra's Life, it's a very accurate image how the life was in that time in South America (1910-1960); as the country people survived in those days. Violeta Parra was a member of the prolific Parra family. Among her brothers were the notable modern poet, Nicanor Parra and fellow folklorist Roberto Parra. Her children, Ángel and Isabel Parra, are also important figures in the "Nueva Canción Chilena".
Violeta Parra's music is gorgeous,and it tried to make the world better. Songs like "Gracias a La Vida" or "Volver a los diecisiete" are celebrations of life. At the same time showed the contradictory nature of the human condition. Her Music was popularized throughout Latin America by Mercedes Sosa, in Brazil by Elis Regina and later in the US by Joan Baez.
