Flamenco sin Fronteras, documentary project about flamenco and its protagonists, goes ahead with a double proposal:
- to screen in premiere the first film “Flamenco sin Fronteras” all over the world;
- to realize the the second documentary of a series, “beyond the border of Andalusia and Spain”.
1. “Flamenco is unfinished”, says the musician Jorge Pardo in the film, and also Flamenco sin Fronteras, as an incremental project, would like to continue to be offered with something new in each projection. The first documentary of the series, shot in Andalusia, has been presented as a rough cut at the Festival de Jerez and other flamenco festivals in 2016 (in Spanish with English subtitles), and in a second version at the Arte Flamenco Festival in Mont-de-Marsan (France) in 2018 (in Spanish with French subtitles, see the news on the festival website). After the review of the feature film, the proposal is to continue with screenings in premiere all over the world, realizing each one as an original event (like all the times that flamenco is given live), for example with debates with the director, guests and possible revisions in the film editing each time, since the author continues to live in contact with “flamenco sources”.
2. To realize a series on “a living art without borders”, the proposal is to take advantage of the tour of the first documentary to film performances, interviews and fragments of life of the protagonists of flamenco outside of Andalucia and Spain, to show in a second documentary how other protagonists of flamenco live it and are developing it in regions and environments different from those of its origin, and how they interact with spanish artists.
