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 Told through performances, TV interviews, home movies, family photographs, private letters and unpublished memoirs—nearly all of which have never been shown to the public—the film reveals the essence of an extraordinary woman who rose from humble beginnings in New York City to become a glamorous international superstar and one of the greatest artists of all time. „Maria by Callas“ is a loving portrait of one of history's most extraordinarily talented women, told in a way that is revelatory, unprecedented, and authoritative.
