On the occasion of the new production Entre dos aguas, sequel of La leyenda del tiempo, ASFF wishes to pay homage to its creator Isaki Lacuesta by showing both productions in a double bill section especially created for you.
These films challenge the boundaries of story-telling, making us as an audience forget we are observing fiction. Make sure to catch these films, “a palpitating and vibrant reflection of life in Spain.”
DIR: Isaki Lacuesta
Cast: Israel Gómez Romero, Francisco José Gómez Romero
2006 / Spain 109 min
A documentary/fiction mix inspired by the flamenco singer Camarón.
This is a two-voiced story: the voice of Israel, a gypsy boy from San Fernando who is obliged to give up singing flamenco after his father’s death because of the mourning, and the voice of Makiko, a Japanese nurse who left her country of origin and came to San Fernando to learn flamenco. A twofold story and, at the same time, a narrative and a documentary. The film departs from the two protagonists, their desires, their expectations, and follows their developments, their achievements, and their joys and grieves. The time of this narrative is mesmerizing, accompanied by the music of the city: Israel’s singing and the great masters of Spanish flamenco.
