SYNOPSIS

NUEVE SEVILLAS (NINE SEVILLES) is an immersion in a unique culture in a unique city—the music, dance and gitano culture of Seville, Spain today. NUEVE SEVILLAS is discursive, loose, beautiful, and remarkable, like the music itself. Nine people, nine characters of the city, nine literal walks through Seville, and a sweet trip into the flamenco art and dance world with which it is so closely linked. With the presence of a new generation of artists, the city and the flamenco are lending affection, conversations and gestures to each other, which we share over the film’s relaxed running time. NUEVE SEVILLAS portrays one unique city and nine people closely: perfect accomplices for this film in its rare mix of radicalism in form and rootedness to the city.
