Exclusive Clip From The Matador


ComingSoon.net has an exclusive first look at a new clip from City Lights Pictures’ The Matador, opening in New York on Friday, October 31.

Directed by Stephen Higgins and Nina Gilden Seavey, the documentary is a story of love — of a son for his family, of audiences for their heroes, of a people for their cultural traditions, and of the bullfighter’s paradoxical love for the majestic beast that he must kill to create his art. As David struggles to achieve his place in the pantheon of Spain’s greatest bullfighters, he is confronted by those who question the place of this ancient and brutal ritual in the modern world.
