This loving documentary portrait of legendary Greek-American opera singer Maria Callas allows her to tell her story in her own words, using performances, interviews and home movies never before shown to the public (as well as readings of her letters by contemporary opera star Joyce DiDonato). Callas believed that two different women lived in her: Maria, who longed for a normal life; and Callas, the public figure and icon. The film confronts the controversies of her career, from her reputation as a “tempestuous” diva to her conflict with the Metropolitan Opera’s Rudolf Bing, and it also sheds new light on her relationship with Aristotle Onassis, the love of her life. Rated PG. Writer/Producer/Director: Tom Volf. (US/France 2018) 113 min.
