Many fine artists contributed to this film but we would like to thank particularly Paul Cowan, Hans Oomes, Paul Demers, and the wonderful dancers from the National Ballet School of Canada. But most importantly I would like to thank the two great teachers of "Flamenco at 5:15," Susana and Antonio Robledo. It is their dignity, their discipline, and their commitment to life which were the inspiration for this film. Thank you.
This film was produced by the National Film Board of Canada. We're funded by the Canadian public, and so on behalf of our twenty-five million investors, I'd like to thank the Academy very much. I'm very proud. Thank you.
[Unintelligible...] is his birthday tomorrow. Happy birthday, Dylan.
Leslie*, Ann*, Jennifer and Beth. Thanks, good night. Go to sleep.
