This length film documentary tells the progression of the homonymous album. This is an unusual, anarchic and impressive project created by Enrique Morente and the Lagartija Nick in the 90s. It became a revolutionary event that mixed flamenco voice and electric guitars with the Federico García Lorca’s poetry and Leonard Cohen’s score.
