Poetic, riveting and moving, three-time Academy Award nominee Carlos Saura's latest foray into the music of Argentina explores the heart of traditional Argentine folklore and its stunning musical heritage-from traditional styles to modern dance. Now 84, the legendary director states: "by beginning with the most beautiful traditional songs, I wish to explore the deep, telluric connection between song and soil, tradition and the future...I will create a film that is not only for aficionados but for all lovers of music and dance-as well as those who especially liked Carmen or Tango. My desire is to create a cinematic experience unlike any other."
