Project Synopsis:

Considered a remarkable achievement in approach and style, and involving some of the period’s greatest artists by fusing dance, music and painting and transcending cultural and dance differences, The Three Cornered Hat brought flamenco to the world. This film retraces the journey and contributions of Félix Fernández García, a superb flamenco dancer who was selected by the Ballet Russes to be flamenco teacher, performer and collaborator.  Garcia’s fate, after the ballet was created, led him to be placed in a mental asylum and kept there for 22 years, until his death. He never danced his ballet while many enjoyed its fame.
