The few articles about it seem to be all about the festival de Cordoba. They mention that there was supposed to be a full-length documentary film as well as a TV series in installments. Then it just disappears into thin air. Maybe it's the same thing as that teaching video everyone said he was producing years ago but that never materialized?
That intro though...straight out of a Jehovah's Witness missionary video...

As far as I can tell, you still can't actually buy it, despite there being an "opciones de compra" section . But if you get lucky and find one of the links that doesn't lead to "error 404" territory (which is 90% of his site), you can still get some info. 13 DVD chapters for a total of 6 hours of material, + 2 books, for a grand total of 620 euros. If you click on the link for a given chapter, there's a description of the performances it includes. So who knows, maybe if he's finally willing to give details and to put a price tag on it, you might be able to get your hands on it by emailing them.

620e of a price tag is pretty much in the university level purchase of materials, that said i've paid 450e for essential law books, some law books come in at 550e for a single book for law school.

Now the website says: "estamos en proceso de renovacion de la pagina web. En breve volveremos". Keeping the suspense going...

When I posted that, the way the site was structured seemed to indicate that it would also be possible to purchase individual parts separately. That would be nice. Not begrudging him the price tag for the whole thing of course, but having that alternative of buying a bit here and bit there is good for people who may not be able to dish out 600 euros in one go.

Looks like it's up, or at least getting there: https://www.manolosanlucar.com/tienda

Price is now 1,167 euros for 13 DVDs, roughly 25-30 minutes each. It doesn't seem to include the books and I don't see an option for purchasing those. There's also a lot more information now under the "Gran Obra Maestra" and "Obra Audiovisual" tabs, with trailers, short audio clips, etc.

RE: Manolo Sanlucar documentary (in reply to Piwin

Maybe it took them too long, it just seems so...disconnected.

Why on earth would someone spend €100 on a half hour DVD, and over €1000 for the set, no matter how well produced? Normally, the DVDs would accompany the written material except, of course, now-a-days DVDs aren’t even provided, instead there are links to download 4K videos. My DVD player isn’t even hooked up, and I certainly wouldn’t buy one at this point, it’s obsolete technology.

It just seems dated and extremely expensive. It will be interesting to see what the written material will be priced at and how they manage to connect it with the videos. I can’t see someone spending over a thousand Euros on some older format videos and then ponying up what will likely be thousands more for the pages. I think the world has moved on from that. I’m not saying he is obsolete, but perhaps what he’s doing is.

Maybe some schools, libraries, and archives will obtain copies. How many musicians will, when the cost will likely line up with that of a professional level guitar? Not many, I suspect.

Perhaps Henry is right and this is targeting the text-book market but, even then, the format is obsolete and students would have the right to demand better. How many students even have access to a DVD player? Do compact laptops even have them anymore?

I wish!

The prices indicated on the website don't include value-added tax, so when you "go to cart" it adds that to the price. In other words, the actual price is 1,167 euros + 21%.

Anyway, I probably wouldn't have bought it at the 600 price, so there are even less chances that I'll buy it now. If ever there's a post-pandemic back-to-sort-of-stable world, I wouldn't be against getting a chapter or two, but the whole set is definitely beyond what I'm willing to pay for that kind of material. Like Rob said, that's enough to buy a guitar, or in my case, looking at what I need, a used car.

Finally! It’s a steal!!! I like how there is no description of the content whatsoever. 200E for the second DVD, that must be the good one.

Just a reminder that the old Encuentro vids were $100 each with book and were totally worth it at the time.

The whole thing on M. Sanlucar website reminds me of this interview of Frank Gambale.
