A magnificent profile of Maria Bethânia, one of the greatest singers in Brazilian music and key figure of the tropicália movement.

Whether singing songs by Chico Buarque or Vinicius de Moraes to an enraptured crowd, or rehearsing alone in the studio, Maria Bethania’s voice and charm captivate all those lucky enough to hear.

Narrated by Maria herself, this film is a biography and masterclass in one, both a chronicle of her life-story and creativity, and a fascinating forum for her musical theory.

France/Switz 2005 Dir. Georges Gachot 82 min.
