Spanish virtuoso flamenco guitarist and composer Paco de Lucia (1947-2014) was one of the first musicians to incorporate other musical genres such as classical and jazz into his work. The Andalusian master agreed to collaborate on a documentary about his devotion to Flamenco. Featuring introspective and amusing interview footage, performances, and reflections on many musical forms, the film traces Pacos life through his last days in Mallorca while completing the arrangements for a posthumous CD release.
