    • Synopsis
    • Camarón recorded The Legend of Time with lyrics of Federico García Lorca, Omar
      Khayan and Kiko Veneno. Although the critics of the time gave it terrible reviews, nowadays it is
      considered the best record that Flamenco art has created in an effort to open up new paths.
      Spain was learning to live in freedom after the dictatorship, Camarón grew a beard, left his nickname
      “De la Isla” behind, and took an electric guitar to play flamenco, rock and jazz.
      Time of Legend is a film that includes many unpublished documents that suggests us to travel
      back to the beginning of this adventure with the guidance of its main characters, a group of artists
      who have become brilliant with the time and who gather together around the legendary singer to
      write one the most wonderful and risky pages of the current Spanish music history.
