In 1966 the Spanish Army built a huge cemetery with 5000 graves in Burgos for the final sequence in the film "The Good the Bad and the Ugly". After the shooting, the whole place was left behind and for 49 years, nature covered every tomb. In October 2015 a group of film fans decided to start digging and under 3 inches of ground they found the original paved circle. For months, people from all around Europe traveled to Sad Hill to unearth and rebuild the place. Sad Hill Unearthed is the amazing story behind one of the most iconic locations in film history. It explores the dreams and motivations behind the fans but also the transformation of art, music and film in a substitute for religion.

For lovers of cinema and film makers and the art of movie making this is wonderful
27 December 2018 | by fostrhodSee all my reviews

If your a fan of movies, in particular Westerns, spaghetti Westerns , made by Sergio Leone and scored by Ennio Morricone and in particular "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" this homage to those wonderful movie makers and the fans who helped reclaim from the passage of time the Sad Hill Cemetery which had become overgrown in Almeria in Spain its location of filming over 50 years ago.

On watching the film you can't fail to get enthused by both the movie lovers in the documentary and also the desire to rewatch the Leone Spaghetti westerns.

Bizarrely what it does bring to mind is the love of cinema which is depicted in Guiseppe Tornatore's Cinema Paradiso from 1988 also scored by Morricone.

If you love the cinema and film makers watch this.
