Africadelic Festival presents this intimate documentary again about 'the barefoot diva', global star Cesária Évora from Cape Verde. Her voice took her from poverty to stardom, but her only dream was to be free. The film combines archive footage, concert footage, interviews and footage of Cape Verde to create a powerful portrait and was one of the highlights of the last edition of IDFA. 

Africadelic is an annual festival on and around International Africa Day (25 May) celebrating the diversity, creativity and strength of Africa and the African diaspora. The Africadelic Festival is an ode to the motherland, its cultural richness, and the influence Afrodescendants, people of African descent, have on global culture and society. From 24 to 31 May, the festival offers another week of concerts, films, talks and other inspiring events, including this special screening of Cesaria Evora.
