Where the Unspeakable is Sung
The True Flamenco with Manuel Morao
' Flamenco ' for the tourist is a world away from the genuine flamenco which for over a century has profoundly influenced the Spanish cultural scene. Perhaps surprisingly it still survives as a living force among the gypsies of Andalucia. This film traces its history and features some of its finest present-day interpreters, most of whom appear before the camera for the very first time.
