Mercedes Sosa

The full-bodied richness of Argentine singer Mercedes Sosa’s voice is given equal weight to her life and politics in Rodrigo H. Vila’s enjoyable if standard bio-docu. Developed with the assistance of her son Fabian Matus, who acts as guide and interviewer, the pic nicely straddles a line between Sosa’s private and public personas, never quite delving deep although Vila covers all the bases, from her poor childhood through her fame, run-ins with the military junta, exile, triumphant return and widespread influence. A small Stateside release will satisfy fans and inspire the uninitiated.
