Critic Quotes:

“Catherine Gund and Daresha Kyi’s documentary Chavela is both a celebration of the rough but ultimately triumphant life of Mexican ranchera singer Chavela Vargas.” – SF Weekly

“In Chavela, Catherine Gund and Daresha Kyi have crafted a documentary that works just as well as an introduction to the legendary ranchera singer as it does a fond remembrance for those who knew her well.” – Film Inquiry

“Throughout Chavela, onscreen translations of lyrics accompany concert clips. A literal understanding of the songs is hardly necessary, though. The emotion in the performance says everything we need to know.” – Los Angeles Times

“Loaded with concert footage, interviews with friends, and terrific photos, this well-balanced documentary directed by Gund and Daresha Kyi celebrates the woman and the legend…” – Variety
