This documentary film, Saura continues in his line of work, which uses contemporary flamenco to make his contribution to Spanish musical cinema, accompanied by unquestionable artists such as the dancers Sara Baras, Antonio Canales, José Antonio Ruiz, Aída Gómez and Patrick de Bana, the musicians Manolo Sanlúcar, Gerardo Núñez and Jorge Pardo and the singers Enrique Morente and his daughter Estrella.
This film also initiates a more ambitious stage that will lead Saura to investigate the folkloric tradition of other environments, approaching them directly, as he will demonstrate in two of his later films: Fados (2007) and Zonda, folclore argentino (2015).
Synopsis: Based on Iberia, the musical piece by Isaac Albéniz, this documentary follows the rehearsals and performances of dancers, choreographers, musicians and singers, all great artists in the world of contemporary flamenco.
