Filmmaker Carlos Saura returns to his bitter childhood memories of the Spanish Civil War in this 1990 film. Carmela, her husband Paulino, and their assistant Gustavete are traveling entertainers, touring the countryside to perform before Republican troops. When they are arrested in Franco-controlled territory, a theatre-loving Italian Fascist commander attempts to bargain with them to stage a burlesque of the Republic in exchange for their freedom. Presented in partnership with Instituto Cervantes.
