Carlos Saura's Flamenco Trilogy: Eclipse From The Criterion Collection

One of Spanish cinema's great auteurs, Carlos Saura brought international audiences closer to the art of his country's dance than any other filmmaker, before or since. In his Flamenco Trilogy - Blood Wedding, Carmen, and El Amor Brujo - Saura merged his passion for music with his ongoing exploration of Spanish national identity. All starring and choreographed by legendary dancer Antonio Gades, the films feature thrilling physicality and electrifying cinematography and editing-colorful paeans to bodies in motion as well as to the cinema that so eloquently, and artfully, captured them.

Blood Wedding (Bodas De Sangre)

Carlos Saura's first collaboration with choreographer Antonio Gades is a dazzlingly shot and edited dress rehearsal for Gades's ballet of the classic Federico Garcia Lorca tragedy.


Saura's Oscar-nominated tribute to the original Carmen story, by Prosper Merimee, casts Gades as a choreographer who falls for the gorgeous mystery woman he has discovered for his new production.

El Amor Brujo

Manuel de Falla's beloved Gypsy ballet explodes onto the screen with blazing colors in Saura's final work with Gades, a love quadrangle and ghost story featuring ravishing dancing and camera work.
