Spanish filmmaker Francisco Rovira Beleta earned two Academy Awards during his lauded career for his art-based projects. Beleta garnered the first nod, in the Best Foreign Language Film category, for directing the 1963 Spanish musical drama Los Tarantos, based on the play La historia de los Tarantos written by Alfredo Mañas, and inspired by William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. He then earned his second nod four years later in the same category for directing the drama El Amor Brujo, which was based on the eponymous ballet by Manuel de Falla.
