“The swirling together of music, dance, color and light, along with the feeling that these serious revels are driven by ancient, impenetrable mysteries, cannot help but stir the blood.” Stephen Holden, New York Times. This beautifully photographed documentary is Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura's tribute to the beauty and diversity of Spain's national dance. Using only the minimalist setting of an abandoned Seville train station and the costumes of more than 300 performers, this is a veritable feast of exciting flamenco dances, songs, and guitar playing.
