“La Española. La de Torres” tells the story of the unknown inventor of today’s guitar, Antonio de Torres Jurado. A carpenter born into a humble family in Almeria in 1817, he achieved universal fame in the mid-19th century, changing the construction model for national guitar schools around the world and perpetuating it to the present day. The filmmakers Fran López Montoro and Raúl Enrique Navarro, great-great-grandchildren of the luthier, have traveled around Europe, interviewing personalities from different fields around his figure, building a fine audiovisual instrument about the Spanish guitar.
