Villa-Lobos Documentary Film Translation

Thanks to Bruno Mano, we have a transcription and English translation for the YouTube portion of the Villa-Lobos documentary film I recently posted. The film and Bruno's translation are here, at the Villa-Lobos Website.

Here's one of the best bits, from Villa's friend and brother-in-law:

Villa Lobos had a liking for the monumental: his cigars were the biggest in the world, the television that he bought in the US looked like a cinema screen. When he learned to drive an automobile, the car he bought was a Dodge, with twelve seats, a presidential car.
