Closing Film -MIÚCHA, The Voice of Bossa Nova

Despite her position at the epicentre of the Brazilian Bossa Nova scene, singer Heloísa Maria Buarque de Hollanda, known as Miúcha, has been largely underappreciated.
Miúcha, The Voice of Bossa Nova tells the story of the renowned Brazilian singer through her personal letters, audio diaries, home movies, and her own expressive watercolor drawings animated for the film.
