Born in Argentina in 1941, Martha Argerich gained the nickname ‘Amazones’ because of passionate performances and has been active as one of the best pianists in the world up to date. Although her music world is widely known through a number of concerts and albums, her private life is barely known. Stephanie, a daughter she had with Stephen Kovacevich, shows both the private life of her mother raising three daughters from all different fathers and her life as an artist in this film. Being extremely sensitive right before she stands on the stage yet being so friendly with her three grown-up daughters, Mrs. Argerich will move viewers with beautiful piano melodies.
Stéphanie Argerich was born in Bern in 1975. She studied Russian in Moscow then photography in Parsons Design School of New York. In Paris she did several training courses of video recording where she directed her first movies. Bloody Daughter is her first full-length film.
