The Brazilian edition of the International Music Documentary Festival, or In-Edit, got underway in Sao Paulo with the screening at six theaters of 58 films from 20 countries.
The festival offers “everything related to music, like bands, biographies of artists, recitals, music for therapy and different rhythms, from classic to jazz and rock,” In-Edit Brasil director Marcelo Andrade told the official Agencia Brasil news agency.
The festival features 2013 Oscar winner “Searching for Sugar Man,” a British-Swedish film that tells the story of Mexican-American singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez, who disappeared in the United States in the 1970s after putting out two albums.
“El Medico: The Cubaton Story,” a documentary about a Cuban doctor who has to choose between pursuing his career or becoming a musician, is among the other works featured at the festival.
