The documentary series Raphaelismo, a Movistar+ original, will be presented at San Sebastian Festival’s 69th edition, to run from September 17-25. Its release on the platform is scheduled for 2022. The series brings an intimate portrait of the artist’s successes, secrets, fears and dreams, including unseen audiovisual footage, making this the first and only documentary with the direct involvement of Raphael himself, his family, RLM and Universal Music Spain. The Movistar+ Gala will take place on Sunday 19 at the Victoria Eugenia Theatre with the presence of Raphael and the exclusive preview of a single episode.
Charlie Arnaiz and Alberto Ortega from Dadá Films & Entertainment – Goya nominees for Anatomía de un Dandy (2020) – are the creators of this documentary series, which they also direct and produce.

The only documentary about the artist which involves, apart from his own participation, that of his wife, Natalia Figueroa, and their three children, Jacobo, Alejandra and Manuel Martos, offering a much more intimate and human vision of Raphael.
Shot between Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Linares (Jaén), Tamajón and El Cubillo de Uceda (Guadajalara), Benidorm (Alicante), Mexico, Miami and Los Angeles, the series will be released on Movistar+ in 2022.
