" Death in the Alcarria"
Director: Fernando Pomares
A production of the Cubero brothers
A musical western with the musicians Los Cubero Brothers in their search for inspiration through the journey through their homeland La Alcarria. A land of culture and roots now transformed into a lifeless memory. Two brothers looking in their past through the music they create, which is precisely halfway between the popular Castilian songs and the American bluegrass. "Death in La Alcarria" is a musical between the devastated universe of John Ford and the spirituality of Yasuhiro Ozu. A poetic film that wants to connect the viewer with that part of our culture that we lose every day: our roots.
