DIRECTOR: Carlos Saura - SPAIN

Fifteen years after Flamenco, his landmark film on the history of Spanish music and dance, Saura re-teams with cinematographer Vittorio Storaro and music director Isidro Muñoz to introduce an exciting new generation of flamenco singers, musicians, and dancers. “There is a new and incredibly powerful flamenco being created by young talents who have so much to offer—both in orthodox flamenco and in fusion flamenco, blending in other music styles. The new work cannot be conveyed without giving the context of the great Spanish masters. So, our first mission was to start ‘placing’ the different artists we already know in the history of flamenco—Paco de Lucia, Manolo Sanlúcar, José Mercé. These important names are part of the core of the musical structure of the film—a kind of trunk which supports the rest.”—Carlos Saura. (90 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Cria! (76), Carmen (83), Ay Carmela (90), Flamenco (95), Tango (98), Goya in Bordeaux (98), Fados (07).
