    • Synopsis
    • Did Chavela really creep into women’s bedrooms like Ava Gadner late at night to steal them away from their husbands? Did she pack a pistol she sometimes shot off just for fun? Or have epic drinking binges with friends that started on Friday and ended the following Wednesday? Did she spend a year living with Frida Kahlo and having a passionate romance with her? Chavela's joyful, painful, musical and deeply spiritual journey to self-acceptance is the heart and soul of this documentary. An arresting portrait of a woman who dared to dress, speak, sing, and dream her unique life into being.
