We are delighted to bring you the chance to see a restored copy of this classic flamenco drama inspired by Romeo and Juliet on the big screen.

Los Tarantos is characterized by a gritty, Catalan gitano style of dancing and marks the final appearance of the legendary Carmen Amaya, against the backdrop of Las Ramblas and other iconic Barcelona streets.

The star-crossed lovers are played by Sara Lezana and the mesmerizing Antonio Gades, best remembered for his dancing (and acting) in Carlos Saura’s flamenco trilogy that began with Carmen. Los Tarantos was nominated for the Best Foreign Film Oscar in 1963.

A gypsy-flamenco Romeo and Juliet from Barcelona. Fierce, stunningly evocative, haunting.
