13. Miguel Poveda

Director Paco Ortiz
Spain / 92 min. / 2015 / Spanish


A shy guy from Badalona “who found a treasure within him” celebrates a 25-year career with a unique concert. En route to Las Ventas, we review his journey, his blood, his heart and his loves. We touch upon all his facets, and all the fans and mentors make an appearance. From Serrat to Matilde Coral and María Dolores Pradera.


"He's got that old voice we know and love, but new", says the dancer Matilde Coral. It's Miguel Poveda, in shorts, having breakfast, watching videos of other singers. It's the calm before the storm: Poveda's just 11 months shy of a major concert in Las Ventas where he'll celebrate 25 years singing. En route to the bullring, we retrace the steps of that shy guy from Badalona "who found a treasure within himself." Poveda talks about being bullied at school and withdrawing into himself, we stroll with him along Carrer del Mar – his hometown street, his family appear, and his granny asserts that "his heart is better than his singing, and look what a great singer he is." A phrase that gives us an idea of the moral stature of this star (he masters all the skills and tasks he is set). Here is his journey, his prizes, his blood, his heart, and his loves. All his fans and mentors appear: Serrat, Elvira Lindo, María Dolores Pradera and Carmen Linares. And suddenly, the great day dawns.
