Vlad Druc | Moldavia | 2011 | 72'

The impetuous artistic nature and innate theatrical sensibility, combined with intelligence and a stunning voice, have made opera singer and actress Maria Cebotari into one of Europe's brightest artistic presences at the beginning of the 20th century. Conceived as a documentary and musically-structured as an opera performance, Aria can surprisingly be perceived as a fictional narrative, causing uncommon emotions and aesthetic experiences. Maria Cebotari's artistic destiny is uniquely expressed in this dramatic and purifying cinema performance.
