It’s all gone very Spanish down on Pearse Street

Flamenco dancers

DocSpot is a new initiative organised by Pearse Street library where once a month, they screen a documentary for free, and lay on light refreshments to boot.

This Saturday 24th June from 1.30pm, the library will screen a Spanish language documentary in association with Instituto Cervantes. The film is “Sacromonte: los sabios de la tribu” (Sacromonte: The Wise of the Tribe) and it tells the story of Sacromonte, a neighbourhood in the Spanish city of Granada, long considered the cradle of Flamenco.

The documentary includes interviews with survivors from Flamenco’s golden age when Flamenco was an art form, a livelihood, and a family inheritance.

The library’s Spanish/English language exchange will also be held on the same day from 11am to 1pm in the conference room, and for those who want something different, a Portuguese/English language exchange will be held from 1pm to 3pm.
