IBERIA is an intense journey and a celebration that blends the passionate heart of flamenco in its most powerful discipline, with an outstanding display of skill, with classical music, ballet and contemporary dance. Carlos Saura has decided to work with Spain’s greatest talents alive today, combining them as never before and bringing out the best of each one. Inspired by the work of the Spanish composer, Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909), IBERIA is a film that integrates the components of a musical in a unique manner. Saura’s camera is transformed into another artist and shares the preparation, rehearsals and gradual development of each performance. Saura presents the audience with a dramatic and emotional universe, a world filled with passion and creativity.
