Synopsis: Sun Jan 6 – MARIA BY CALLAS – 1 hr 35 min – PG. Tom Volf's MARIA BY CALLAS is the first film to tell the life story of the legendary Greek/American opera singer completely in her own words. Told through performances, TV interviews, home movies, family photographs, private letters and unpublished memoirs-nearly all of which have never been shown to the public-the film reveals the essence of an extraordinary woman who rose from humble beginnings to become a glamorous international superstar and one of the greatest artists of all time. Assembling the material for the film took director Volf four years of painstaking research. “Highest Rating! ‘Maria by Callas’ finds lots of footage that most of us have never seen, and it’s all fascinating.” –Mick LaSalle, S.F. Chronicle.
