Directed by Carlos Saura

❤️ WHY WE LOVE IT ❤️

In his constant investigation of world music, master Carlos Saura proposes a documentary which takes a different look at the most characteristic Portuguese style, far beyond the topical saudade. The director shows an intricate connection between fado and other types of music as apparently distant as flamenco and bossa nova. The film includes an extraordinary roster of musicians, from fadistas Mariza, Carlos do Carmo and Camané to Spaniard Miguel Poveda, Brazilians Caetano Veloso and Chico Buarque and also Mexican Lila Downs.

SYNOPSIS

FADOS is part of the cycle of musical masterpieces initiated more than 15 years ago by acclaimed director Carlos Saura. FADOS at tempts to capture the elusive nature of the Portuguese “Saudade” and to depict a faithful portrait of the Portuguese soul through its most emblematic musical genre.
