Thanks to everyone who made it out to the first film night. There was lots of good company, food, drink and music. Cheers to those of you who stuck around for the after-party mini juerga! Can’t wait for the next film night in February when we will be showing El Cable.

Dos Lunares Film Night

Filed under: Film Series — Dos Lunares @ 9:41 pm

Flamenco-Sacramonte, Granada.

Dos Lunares begins it’s film series on Saturday, January 20th with the documentary The Romany Trail Part One: Gypsy Music into Africa. A precursor to the popular film Latcho Drom, this documentary follows the historical journey of the Roma as they moved through India, North Africa and into Spain. In the various countries where they’ve settled, Gypsies have created lasting art forms through music and dance by meshing their distinctive Gypsy style with native traditions. This excellent documentary contains rare footage of Roma performers as well as interviews with locals, scholars and artists. This is part one of the series, part two to be shown at a future date. Light refreshments will be served.
Please join us for our inaugural screening!
