Rock Star - Lanzarote On Location


Guest Post by Nick Ball

The small Canary Island of Lanzarote is currently enjoying a spell in the limelight as the latest release from Spanish director Pedro Almódovar - Broken Embraces - was shot on location around the island. The film highlights Lanzarote's unique volcanic scenery to great effect.

Broken Embraces


Lanzarote was subjected to one of the modern world's longest ever volcanic eruptions during the 1730's. The eruption lasted for six years - totally remodelling much of the interior of the island, destroying farms and villages and replacing them with lava fields and the exhausted peaks of spent volcanoes.

The terrain here is so surreal and dramatic that it's a natural choice for filmmakers. Science fiction classics such as One Million Years BC and Krull were shot against the eerie lunar like landscape.

Looks and sounds like an awesome place. My husband will be very happy to know that Almodovar has a new movie.
