Jota De Saura


Visually stunning, Jota de Saura captures the vivacity and charm of the jota, a traditional Spanish dance often accompanied by the use of castanets and originally from Aragon, Saura’s birthplace.


The legendary filmmaker, whose inclination for music and dance has always played an important role throughout his extensive filmography, takes us from dance classes to studios where illuminated screens with his own paintings provide a magic backdrop to the dancers performances. This a wonderful trip to the world of the jota and its many variations that works towards safeguarding a very special tradition.
