Join us for a free screening of two documentaries that reveal the depths of the mighty Flamenco art form.
Cynthia Scott, 1983, documentary, 29 minutes, rated E*
This Oscar-winning short is an impressionistic record of a flamenco dance class given to senior students of the National Ballet School of Canada by two great teachers from Spain — Susana and Antonio Robledo. This film is presented in collaboration with the National Film Board.
Carlos Saura, 2010, documentary, 100 minutes, rated E*
Bafta-winning filmmaker Carlos Saura collaborates with Oscar-winning cinematographer Vittorio Storario (Apocalypse Now) to capture vivid performances full of colour, song, and passion that speak to the rich tradition of Flamenco.
This event is part of the Museum’s fifth annual Duende: Flamenco Festival, and part of our 2019/20 Performing Arts season, Listening to Each Other, which pays tribute to the role of the performative arts in connecting communities, preserving culture, and spurring social change.
