Viva Maria!

dir. Agnieszka Smoczyńska / Poland / 2010 / 17min

The great Polish opera diva Maria Fołtyn created her greatest performance in Stanisław Moniuszko's ‘Halka’, with which she toured worldwide - she was applauded by Stalin and admired by Castro. Today, when she is losing her voice, she has decided to give way to her successor. The film ‘Viva Maria!’ is a tale of passion, sacrifice and devotion, and is an extraordinary story of passing down a voice.
