To depict the life and work of Beto (or if you prefer to call him by his name, Alberto Zamarbide, the V8 vocalist who taught Argentina to sing Heavy Metal, with capital letters, yes) means to draw an arch that goes from the loneliness of the very first heavies, misunderstood and resisted during the last dictatorship, to the growing epic of metal bands. And this documentary spans through the entire circuit, which is now thirty years old after the inaugural landmark concert of V8 at the BA Rock festival in 1982, which started a certain form of metal struggle carried out at the time by a group of musicians that would cross some boundaries and challenge their time. From the hordes calling for “Destruction” to the formation and influence of Logos as icons of Evangelist heavy metal, Beto and his associates –including the great Ricardo Iorio– tell the story they star in, which contains everything that is iconic about the genre (head-banging, drugs, blood, leather, and pins), but also the unimaginable: diet juice, sunny Miami, a concert in a church, and God on a spotlight. 29 th MDPFF catalogue
