During the sixties and part of the seventies, Almeria became the filmmaking California of   Southern Europe. In this province of Andalucia dozens of Western films were shot. The first of these, starring a young Clint Eastwood, “A Fistful of Dollars” was so successful it gave rise to a complete film genre, the Spaghetti Western. This documentary shows us what this time was like, how the Almeria residents at that time lived this experience and what is left of all this.
