a movie by Stefan Lechner
Abandoning a past of petty crimes, David finds his design in Fado. Ceaselessly pursuing the dream of earning a living as a Fadista, he goes with his friend Adriano to the traditional Fado Vadio circuit in order to perfect himself. But while Adriano begins to get recognition and proposals for paid performances, David only finds it difficult. He then decides to take part in an annual fado contest by singing a poem of his own in an attempt to draw attention to himself.
VADIO – I AM NOT POET is Stefan Lechner’s second documentary feature film as a director and is the result of a 5-year long immersion in the world of Fado Vadio in Lisbon.
VADIO – I AM NOT A POET was the winner of the Audience Award at the DocLisboa 2018 Festival.
