“They’re going to make a movie about Neto? Well he’s brilliant, isn’t he?”

– Ms. Watson, 100-year-old breadbaker, from the Cotswolds in England.

A spectrum of people, voices, and textures, “The Man Behind the White Guitar” is a film about the musical life of Brazilian guitarist, José Neto. Neto’s music and energy have been behind major world musicians, including Harry Belafonte and Steve Winwood, as well as Brazilian greats, Flora Purim and Airto Moreira. His diverse musical journey from Brazil to the United States and England and deep life challenges have taught him the values of loyalty, devotion, and positive vision that speak through his sounds and performing spirit. He’s touched the lives of the most unsuspecting fans worldwide.

Proceeds from the film are donated to underserved youth bound for college through Lua Pires de Almeida Scholarship Fund.
