6:00 PM TRIANA PURA Y PURA

Director Ricardo Pachón
Length 73 min
Premier 2013

Description In the 50s, the gypsies in Triana were thrown out of the neighborhood. In 1983 they got back together for their last big celebration. This previously unseen joyous film celebrates the end of an “indomitable lineage” in a unique evening of flamenco and delight transformed into an ode to a lost world. A priceless documentary that reminds Seville that it once had an illustrious gypsy area and that, when it lost that, it lost its flamenco swing. [trailer]
