“What I've never lost” (86') portrays the trajectory of a singular artist that occupies an inventive place in the Brazilian music. Alzira E moves across various musical styles from regional to experimental in the 70’s and 80’s to blooming in her sixties leading a rock band. 
Born in a small town close to the Brazilian Pantanal region and the Paraguayan border, Alzira began in music within her family circle. The artist migrates to São Paulo and becomes part of its avant-garde artistic movement, which brings to the film a lysergic atmosphere. 
Through the making of the movie, the artists embark on a rediscovery trip through the rivers of the Pantanal region, their own borders, the creative energy of the now, that which is never lost, the course of Alzira E.
