Switzerland/France | 2005 | 82min | 35mm | COLOR | Documentary | Musical


Maria Bethania - Music Is Perfume invites us to enter the universe of Maria Bethania, the famous Brazilian singer. Narrated by Bethania herself, the film not only gives us an insight into the intimate sphere of Maria Bethania’s creative process but also focuses on the history of Brazilian music. First a muse of the so-called counter culture and then the queen of romantic ballads, Maria Bethania chronicles her musical life experience in relation to Brazilian society’s development.
