A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:
Flamenco is a long road of patience that completely intertwines your life” says Juan Ramírez. Juan has been practicing, performing, and most importantly, learning flamenco guitar in Seville for 13 years. In this beautiful short film directed by Pedro Kos and Emmanuel Vaughan Lee, we follow Juan through the quiet cobbled streets of Seville, into private practice rooms and rehearsal spaces as he performs alongside flamenco dancers. His constant striving to improve validates the idea that there is no true mastering of flamenco. There is always something more to learn, whether it be how to rhythmically match your dance subject, or how best to invest your emotions into the music. Flamenco truly is a life-long journey.
Produced by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee
