(Miguel Faria Jr., Brazil, 2015, 70 min. In Portuguese with English subtitles)

An essential figure of Brazilian culture throughout the last 50 years, the author, playwright, and composer of an extraordinary compilation of songs, Chico Buarque engages in a dialogue with his own recollections in this film by Miguel Faria Jr. Chico’s search for his German brother, whom he never got to meet (his father had a son in Berlin before getting married to Chico's mother), serves as one of the axis for the narrative and helps put the artist’s trajectory into perspective. “It is an artist revisiting his own past from a mature point of view,” summarizes Faria Jr.
