Film Title: Triana, Pure and Pure
Genre: Documentary
Year: 2013
Length: 73 mins
Descriptions:

As early as in the 15th century, the Roma settled in Seville's district of Triana. In their poor courtyards and craftsmen's workshops, the purest and wildest Andalusian flamenco was born. The gypsies of Triana were expelled from their neighborhood in the '50s, destroying the local communities. On the 20th anniversary of the expulsion, the Roma organized a big farewell concert with the greatest flamenco masters from Triana performing on stage.

This joyful film memorializes the end of an indomitable lineage in a unique flamenco soiree, transformed into a tribute to a disappeared world.

Their origins are unknown, their language one of the world's most ancient. They established one of the first democracies and led Europe's Age of Exploration, fueled the industrial revolution and then established Spain's first labor unions. Today they are the farmers preserving heirloom seeds, the engineers developing sustainable energies and the activists demanding social change.

Who are these people and how have they navigated the ages as a thriving modern society while retaining a distinctive identity? SONG OF THE BASQUES dances between ancient history and present day as captivating characters embrace us with their singular spirit. An intimate exploration into this mysterious culture develops into a complex picture of indigenous identity.

Worldly curiosity and receptiveness infused with a commitment to heritage, environment and community sustains Basque culture. Facing the current challenges of their contemporary situation, these men and women must do the same. The survival of Basque culture comes to stand for the survival of a way of life that is steadily escaping the ever-homogenizing world. Rooted in heritage, while embracing unknown futures, SONG OF THE BASQUES offers a poetic perspective on how we create and sustain cultures in our contemporary globalized world.
