Polígono Sur & Soleá
Duende: Flamenco Festival 2019

Date: Wed, Nov 20, 2019 07:00PM
Price: FREE

PLEASE NOTE: Due to unforseen circumstances Polígono Sur has been cancelled, but please join us in the auditorium for Miguel Poveda, a biopic about one of the world's foremost flamenco artists, as he takes on the most ambitious performance of his career.

Join us for an evening of cinema that explores how deeply woven Flamenco is in the daily lives of the people of Seville, the capital of Spain’s Andalusia region where Flamenco was born.


Opening Film
Pedro Kos and Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee, 2014, documentary, 13 minutes, rated E*
This short follows a day in the life of Flamenco guitarist Juan Ramírez and traces his journey to master his craft.


Feature Film
Dominique Abel, 2003, documentary, 110 minutes, rated E*

In a troubled and tight-knit Gitano community in Seville’s southside, Flamenco guitar, dance, and song are more than a way of life.

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.
