An UNSCRIPTED interview with Catherine Gund about CHAVELA and MORE!

We love this writeup and in-depth interview with Catherine Gund by Margarita Sophia Cortes! You can read the full article here and watch the full interview below!

"[Chavela] draws in audiences immediately as it begins with the Chavela Vargas saying “Ask me where I’m going, not where I’ve been.” Just as Chavela herself was a feminist muse for women, this documentary, made by women filmmakers also mirror the importance of women’s voices.

In the documentary, you hear Chavela proudly state “It is a blessing to be born a woman” and Gund echoes that message as she explains why it’s vital for women to keep producing more films. “We have experiences we see in a certain way. We have ways of processing them that men don’t necessarily begin with, or end with.”

Chavela is available now on iTunes, Amazon Instant, or GooglePlay and on DVD with special bonus features.
