With the close of the Semana Antonio Gades de Getafe in Madrid, one longs for more of Antonio Gades and his dancing. This documentary, Antonio Gades, La ética de la danza was written and directed by Juan Caño Arecho for Spanish television (TVE) in 2007.

Not only do we have the great pleasure of hearing Antonio Gades speak throughout but there are interviews with flamenco dancer Cristina Hoyos, the tenor Plácido Domingo, the film director Carlos Saura, the writer José Manuel Caballero Bonald, the composer Antonio García Abril, Gades’ daughter the actress María Esteve and many others that have been a special part of his life.
