Synopsis

North American Premiere - In attendance of the Director Georges Gachot

Celebrated Brazilian musician Joao Gilberto (born 1931) is considered the founding father of the bossa nova. Adapted from the book Hobalala by German journalist and author Marc Fischer, this documentary sets out in search of the legend of modern music, still alive but now in the shadows rather than the spotlight. A masterful documentary that passionately brings an important figure of Brazilian music back into focus.
