One of the music industry’s unlikeliest success stories, Évora achieved international fame at age 50 after performing unheralded for years in local bars. Ana Sofia Fonseca’s illuminating documentary gathers considerable archival film as well as photographs, recordings, concert footage and interviews and paints a comprehensive portrait of a supremely talented but troubled artist.

This film is in French, Portuguese and Creole with English subtitles.
