Vinicius de Moraes (1913-1980), o poetinha (the little poet), born Marcus Vinitius da Cruz de Melo Morais in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was a seminal figure in contemporary Brazilian music. As a poet, he wrote lyrics for a great number of songs that became all-time classics (for example, the Girl from Ipanema). He was also a composer, a playwright (including the play which led to the 1959 film Black Orpheus), a diplomat and, as an interpreter of his own songs, he left several important albums.
Archive images combine with up to date interviews with members of his family, friends, partners (among them Chico Buarque, Edu Lobo and Carlos Lyra) and interweaves his life story with readings of his poety and performances of his beautiful songs by many famous Brazilian singers (including Caetano Veloso, Adriana Calcanhotti and Yamandu Costa.
