Paco-de-Lucia-Poster_webWorld renowned flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia’s exceptional life and rise to fame are exquisitely put together in this film by his son Francisco Sánchez Varela. Varela captures his father’s last days on earth just before a sudden and unexpected death in 2014 at 66 years of age.

Part homage, part biopic, the film follows Paco and his brother Pepe, who were born into the Flamenco scene. Pepe was originally a guitarist, but Paco’s virtuoso soon rose to the foreground and Pepe became the duo’s lead singer under the guidance of their father in Andalucia.
