Polígono Sur (El arte de Las Tres Mil) / Seville Southside
Made in Spain

The star of Polígono Sur is the Sevillian neighbourhood of Las Tres Mil Viviendas, home to over 40,000 people, mostly gypsies expelled from the central districts (especially Triana) with the start of land speculation in the late 60s. The result was the most problematic neighbourhood in the city, a mixture of rootlessness, rejection, drugs and the highest crime rate in Seville. But it also holds another, very different record: the greatest number of artists per square metre in the city, i.e. the greatest concentration of flamenco artists, whether of traditional or new flamenco trend. This was the cradle of extremely important musicians like Raimundo and Rafael Amador (Pata Negra), Juana la del Revuelo, Martín Revuelo, etc., whom, in addition to demonstrating their art, tell us of everyday life in Las Tres Mil.
Studied dance and theatre at the Dramatic Art Conservatory in Aix-en-Provence, going on to become a member of the theatre company, Le Contrejour. Having learned flamenco dancing in Madrid, she worked as a dancer, model and actress for directors like Camus, Bardem, Leduc or Dupeyron. After writing a couple of screenplays, in 1998 she directed her first feature film, Agujetas, cantaor, a medium-length documentary on flamenco, as was In the Name of the Father, made two years later. Polígono Sur is her first feature film.
