Carlos Saura is perhaps the most regarded Spanish director after Pedro Almodovar. He has directed since 1956 more than 40 films. From the 90’s he has developed his passion for music and dance, directing movies with a musical thematic, adopting a mix between documentary, film music, theater/dance and drama, with an outstanding visual splendor.

Taking the opportunity of his most recent work in this area, about the Portuguese song, the final work of its own “urban song trilogy,” the Festival ViMus ’07 will present “Fados” and will show his previous features “Flamenco”, “Tango” and “Iberia”.
