    • Synopsis
    • In Pelotas, in the South part of Brazil, there’s a bar/restaurant called Liberdade: an extremely simple place where a band, named Avendano Jr. e o Regional, has been dedicated to playing chorinho music for almost 40 years. The Liberdade tells the story of this place through the testimonials of the people who represent its soul – a bar where the passion for music is the bond that ties regular customers and extraordinary musicians. With special appearances of renowned musicians Vitor Ramil and Yamandu Costa, the movie presents some of the last guardians of chorinho music, the talent of the composer and cavaquinho player, Avendano Jr., and his relationship with the work of Waldir Azevedo, the composer of Brasileirinho.
