Description

One of Spanish cinema’s great auteurs, Carlos Saura brought international audiences closer to the art of his country’s dance than any other filmmaker, before or since. In his Flamenco Trilogy—Blood Wedding, Carmen, and El amor brujo — Saura merged his passion for music with his exploration of national identity. All starring and choreographed by legendary dancer Antonio Gades, the films feature thrilling physicality and electrifying cinematography and editing—colorful paeans to bodies in motion as well as to cinema itself.

Blood Wedding
Carlos Saura, 1981

Carlos Saura began what would become his trilogy with this depiction of a single dress rehearsal for choreographer Antonio Gades’s adaptation of poet/playwright Federico García Lorca’s tale of passionate revenge.

Carmen
Carlos Saura, 1983

Saura’s biggest international box-office success was this self-reflexive meditation on both Bizet’s popular opera Carmen and the original novella by Prosper Mérimée. Antonio Gades plays a choreographer who gets involved with his neophyte lead dancer, and grows dangerously jealous.

El amor brujo
Carlos Saura, 1986

A modern take on composer Manuel de Falla’s gypsy ballet, dressed up in pink sunsets and hellishly red fires. El amor brujo, set in a dusty Andalusian village, is a seductive melodrama of a man (Antonio Gades) whose beloved is haunted by the ghost of another.
