Part of MFAH’s “Jazz on Film” series

Houston premiere

In 1974, one of the prime architects of bossa nova, Antonio Carlos Jobim (Tom), and popular Brazilian singer Elis Regina came together to record what would become one of the most iconic albums in the history of Brazilian music. Through extensive, long-unseen film footage shot at MGM recording studios in Los Angeles during this unique collaboration, Elis and Tom invites viewers to witness the artists’ extraordinary personalities, and the tensions and triumphs of their creative process. The film also traces their backgrounds with archival performance footage, and a number of contributors who share their memories of the sessions, the artists, and their impact.
