Unsung Heroine Film

Delve into the heady atmosphere of 12th century Provence to discover the imagined life and love of the redoubtable troubadour Countess Beatriz de Di, soundtracked by the plaintive music and poetry of the troubadours and lively medieval dances performed by The Telling.

The story imagines how Beatriz came to write her impassioned song 'A Chantar', the only example of a troubadour song by a woman, where both the poetry and melody have survived. Beatriz’s poetry is grounded in the rules of courtly love. She lives in a world where emotions are sacrificed to the strait-jacket of ritual: her only recourse is to channel her pain, love and desire for revenge into this passionate song.
