Flamenco Sevilla (60m; Documentary, Local; Spain; US)

By: John Biffar

The film features flamenco sensation Manuel Jimenez and follows two sisters, both musicians, as they work reinventing the art and music of flamenco with Captiva musician Johnny Jensen. The feature shows how for centuries, thousands of people converge on Seville on Easter week. They celebrate faith, family, and friends. Processions of the Virgin Mary crisscross the streets at all hours, orange blossoms perfume the air, delicious tapas and wine are savored in street-side cafes, and Flamenco dancers dazzle the thousands of visitors that swell this ancient city.
