Directed by Stephanie Argerich
The world-renowned pianists Martha Argerich and Stephen Kovacevich, two giants of classical music, are seen here under the scrutiny of their daughter Stephanie, now in her thirties and a mother herself. Argerich is a warm, intimate and often funny family portrait that questions the relationship between a mother who is a quasi “goddess”, and a very private person, and her three daughters. Screened to acclaim and Locarno and Rome film festivals, this documentary work explores with subtlety the joys and difficulties of combining motherhood with an artistic career. It also pulsates with a profound love of music and the need to create.
