Netflix has announced a new documentary about the Spanish children’s band “Parhcis: The Documentary” who were active between 1979 and 1985. In their relatively short career the group released 20 albums of children’s music that had an impact around the globe. The documentary promises to “reveal the most intimate side” of the Parchis band and will arrive globally on July 10th.
The production features the most intimate testimonies of Yolanda, David, Tino, Gemma and Frank who, 40 years after the band was founded, talk about their rise to fame in their childhood, the way it shaped their lives and their personal analysis of that phase of their youth. The documentary includes testimonies from the group’s managers, who comment about what it meant on a personal and professional level to be exposed to the gaze of millions of fans, as well as what the end of a successful musical career meant for them.
“It is a project focused on a human story, with a sincere look that aspires to do an exercise of empathy with the audience, so they can understand what it meant to achieve such a huge success, prematurely and surprisingly,” says Daniel Arasanz, director of the documentary.
