Carlos Saura’s The King of the Whole World is part of the 50 European films to tempt festival directors in 2021

Having focused mainly on music-themed documentaries for the last 15 years, Saura returns to the music and dance-based drama that won him awards and acclaim earlier in his career, such as 1985 Bafta winner Carmen. English National Ballet lead principal Isaac Hernandez stars opposite National Ballet of Mexico soloist Greta Elizondo as two dancers who fall in love when they are cast as co-leads on a major production. The film is lead produced by Eusebio Pacha at Madrid-based Pipa Films.
