DIRECTED BY - Roberto Berliner, Leonardo Domingues

What is IndiePix Download?


Three blind sisters, linked by this extraordinary twist of fate, spend their lives singing and playing ganzá for spare change on the streets and in the street markets of poverty stricken northeast Brazil. This documentary follows the daily chores of these women and how they survive on their own. Their immersing story, that not without humor, depicts a complex tale of love and death, anguish and art. The story accompanies them in the unexpected turn in their lives as a result of the film; the cinema effect which transforms them into celebrities. Both the director and the subjects of the film face the ties that bind them, revealing the risks and seduction of the documentarian's work.
