Trivia & Production Notes

  • Chavela centers around a 1991 interview--the singer's first public appearance after 15 hard years lost to alcoholism and heartbreak. In the final years of her life, Chavela rises into her momentous third act, achieving international fame, a Lifetime Achievement Grammy, and becomes a muse to many, including filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar.
