Elis (15)

Wednesday 7th February 2018 - 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm, Palmer Building


Boasting a powerful voice and an innovative performance style, Elis Regina broke into bossa nova in the early 1960s and experienced a meteoric rise until her premature death at the age of 36. This moving portrait, starring Andreia Horta as Elis, explores the singer’s troubled life through her most important songs, without forgetting the political contradictions that she had to face during the military dictatorship.
Brazil 2016 – Portuguese with English subtitles – directed by Hugo Prata – Drama – with Andréia Horta, Gustavo Machado and Caco Ciocler – 110 min
