Day 2: Mexico!

To establish a theme-block at the second day of Berlinale, I want to introduce to you two films who are about people and places in Mexico.

The second film is a documentary about the singer Chavela Vargas, who lived all her life openly gay.  The women with the impressive voice had her career highlights in the 60´s and 90´s and turned women´s heads everywhere she went.
