Where Are You, João Gilberto?

Switzerland, France, Germany  ·  2018  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  106'  ·  o.v. German/Portuguese/English/French

The film follows the footsteps of German writer Marc Fischer, who obsessively searched for the last musical legend of our time, the founding father of Bossa Nova, Brazilian musician João Gilberto. Fischer described his journey in a book, Hobalala, but committed suicide one week before it was published. Following his steps, the film searches for João Gilberto to understand the history and the very soul of Bossa Nova. But who can tell whether he will be found or not?
