The story of Snow White is transposed to the world of 1920s Spanish bullfighting—and flamenco—in this dazzling recent b&w silent film (with music) that won nine Goya Awards (Spain’s Oscars) including Best Film and Best Actress. May be too scary for children.
Saura’s “sequel” to his 1995 performance film Flamenco is a swirl of colors, light, camerawork, and Spanish music and dance. Featured are three of the artists who will perform in CMA’s Flamenco Festival: Estrella Morente, Tomatito, and Eva Yerbabuena. No subtitles, but none needed. “The best thing [Saura’s] ever done.” –Ken Eisner.
