'Flamenco Guitar' is the first chapter of the forthcoming documentary series which will describe different musical cultures all over the world through the creators of their instruments. The subject of Greardo's documentary is Flamenco guitar maker David Peña Vargas, who lives and works in the Andalucian town of Jerez de la Frontera, in the Flamenco heartland of southern Spain. In his synopsis of the film, Gerardo writes:
"As we see how he builds a guitar starting from simple wooden slats, we will know his personal life, how he came to this profession, his aspirations and the world that surrounds him. Through the workshop will pass major guitarists as Diego del Morao and Antonio Rey, who will tell us about various aspects of the instrument. We will see the musical life of the streets and bars of Jerez and how Flamenco influences the life of its inhabitants."
