Variety reports that Romería (the third part of Simón’s trilogy that follows her last pair of features ) is still set to shoot in Summer 2024 for what will be an A-list film festival showcase in 2025.

Plucked from the interview with Variety, Simon describes the new film as a “neorealist flamenco musical in the neighbourhood of La Mina, Barcelona” and the roots of the project are tied to family “since I discovered that my biological mother was passionate about flamenco, a great curiosity began to grow in me for this genre, because of its history and its exceptional capacity to connect directly with emotion,” she explained to Variety.
