THE SPANISH ROOM (2010)

SYNOPSIS

THE SPANISH ROOM is a feature length documentary about Yjastros: The American Flamenco Repertory Company, based out of the National Institute of Flamenco in downtown Albuquerque, NM.

The film focuses primarily on the extensive time and effort that goes into producing one of Yjastros’ amazing shows, while also focusing on the many dedicated local people who give so much of their lives to improve their communities through flamenco.

The film interweaves interviews, rehearsal footage, and live concert performances in order to provide a uniquely thorough examination of the world-class flamenco produced by the National Institute of Flamenco and their premiere professional ensemble, Yjastros.
