Legendary guitarist and poet Agustin Barrios (1885-1944) is magnificently portrayed by Damián Alcázar (“Señora Acero”, “Kdabra”) in this powerful and romantic biopic. Raised in Paraguay, young Barrios shows incredible talent and interest for music and literature. Growing to live his life “for art itself”, he travels the world performing under the stage name of Mangoré, finding himself forced to choose between his love of family and his love of art. Emphasizing the tension between Barrios the man and Mangoré the artist, “Mangoré” spins a tale that explores the everyday and the myth, the real and the imaginary about the life, loves and career of one of the twentieth century’s greatest musicians.
