Machina Faust

Estonia2022documentary78'Międzynarodowy konkurs DocFilmMusic (2023)

Meet a saxophone virtuoso who breaks glass ceilings – her name is Maria Faust and she is an eminent Estonian jazz artist who improvises on stage and in her life with equal bravado. She lets the camera in as close as possible, inside her apartment and marriage with an American musician as well the creative process. Hence, an exceptionally intimate portrayal of this expressive and independent woman can be achieved. The audience accompanies her even when her life, which gets out of control in a variety of fields, presents her with new challenges.
