Elis / Directed by Hugo Prata

The life of Elis Regina, undoubtedly the greatest Brazilian singer of all time, is told in this biopic film with energetic and pulsating rhythm. Arrastão by Elis also launched her career for a national audience. For the history of Brazilian music, the record represented the beginning of a new musical style that would be known as Música popular brasileira or Brazilian Popular Music. Her 1974 collaboration with Antonio Carlos Jobim, Elis & Tom, is often cited as one of the greatest bossa nova albums of all time. She sometimes criticized the Brazilian dictatorship which had persecuted and exiled many musicians of her generation.
