This is the saga film of legendary singer Miúcha, the anti-muse of Bossa Nova
Miúcha goes through the 60's and 70's facing the pains and the twists of the dream to become a singer. On her journey, she lives with the so-called "great men": she's João Gilberto’s wife, Vinicius de Moraes’s pupil, Chico Buarque's sister, Tom Jobim’s partner, the voice accompanying Stan Getz’s sax, and an interpreter with Pablo Milanés.
Like a road movie between NY, Paris, Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro, we follow through images in Super 8, 16mm, letters, diaries and cassette tapes, while this woman challenges her destiny to find her own voice.

This out of season carnival is called Lavagem de la Madeleine.
Madeleine, the saint persecuted within the church as a prostitute, seems to be the most appropriate place for this parade of descendants of people made slaves, trans women and people of different nationalities all dancing together.
The party is a place between worlds moving to the sound of music sung in Portuguese and African languages, such as Yorubá.
But can this ritual, which consists of washing the steps of the Madeleine church with water, soap and brooms, erase centuries of colonization? At the end of the procession, will the bodies that dance be the same bodies that scream?
Filmz recently acquired the rights to the book "How to talk to a Fascist" by Márcia Tiburi. An upcoming film based on the book will be directed by Liliane Mutti.
After a dramatic reading in theaters across Brazil in 2018, with Zélia Duncan and Paulo Betti in the main roles, the text of "How to talk to a Fascist" should become a fiction script adapted by the author herself.
With Viktor Orban's re-election in Hungary and the extreme right party at the verge of power at the last Presidential election in France, in addition to Brazil's own political scenario, the adaptation of 'How to Talk to a Fascist,' for the cinema is more than necessary.
