First, Go Anitta is proof of success of this Rio woman who won Brazil and who also plans to embrace the world with her music. Like documentaries such as “Gaga: Five Foot Two”, which showed a little bit of Lady Gaga’s tours’ organization while also showing her routine as a normal person, this series shows the human and artistic side of Anitta, which few people know out of the clips and songs released by her (watch here).
In a way, it is possible to say that this is an investigative documentary, because it approaches the backstage of the mechanism that transformed Anitta into commercial success. At the beginning of the decade, few believed that this girl, native of Rio – from the Honório Gurgel neighborhood, would go far. With the debut of this series in the Netflix catalog, she shows her strength as one of the Brazilian forces in the world of music.
Now, Anitta wants to conquer the world. The documentary follows the singer on her foreign tour, where she tries to carry her message. Every step that Anitta gives in her career has been planned down to the last detail by a team of marketers, and what we follow in this series is the execution of one of the last pieces that were lacking for the complete domination: the shows out of Brazil, as a key factor in the development of Brazilian culture abroad.
But the documentary is not just about winning. Go Anitta does not hesitate to show the backstage of Anitta’s shows and career off the stage, showing the challenges she has to face day by day in order to impose herself on a fully sexist music market. As a woman, she must work harder than her male peers to get media attention and record labels. This is quite explicit in this documentary, which has been divided into seasons.
Synopsis 1: She rose from poverty to become a superstar in her homeland, but she’s not resting on her laurels just yet. Next stop: global fame!
Synopsis 2: Go behind the scenes with Brazilian pop icon Anitta, along with her friends and family, as she aims to create a new song and music video each month.
