J, Beyond Flamenco

Category: documentary
Director: Carlos Saura
Country: Spain
Year: 2016
Length: 85'
Production Status: completed


Closing a vital cycle that started with "Flamenco", Carlos Saura allows us to experience the joy and strength of the dance and music of Aragon, the land where he was born: "la Jota". As in "Sevillanas" or "Fados", "Jota" has evolved from a millennial traditional music and dance, to new artistic dimensions.
Choreographed by Spanish dancing star Miguel Angel Berna, and with the contribution of dancers like Sara Baras or Carmen Paris, or world know musicians such as Carlos Nuñez, Ara Malikian or Italian cellist Giovanni Sollima, with his own personal style Saura continues to distill the magic and explore the boundaries of art in its purest state.
