'Iberia' is an intense journey and a celebration that unites the passionate heart of flamenco, in its most intense discipline and a very high display of skill, together with classical music, ballet and contemporary dance. Carlos Saura has decided to work with the greatest living talents in Spain, combining them like never before and achieving the best delivery from each of them.

Inspired by the work of the Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909), IBERIA is a film that uniquely integrates the components of a musical. Saura's camera becomes one more artist and shares the preparation, rehearsals and gradual gestation of each performance. Saura presents us with a dramatic and moving universe, a world of passion and creativity.
