Fresno Reel Pride is pleased to bring “Chavela” to the 28th Annual LGBTQ Film Festival beginning September 20-24, 2017 at Fresno’s Tower District.
“Chavela” is the captivating look at the unconventional life of beloved performer Chavela Vargas, whose passionate renditions of Mexican popular music and triumphant return to the stage late in life brought her international fame.
The film centers around a 1991 interview- the singer’s first public appearance after 15 hard years lost to alcoholism and heartbreak.
“Chavela” will play Saturday, September 23, 2017 beginning at 4:30 p.m. at the Tower Theatre.
