La Chana

La ChanaWith depth, humor, and pathos, La Chana, directed by Lucija Stojevic, celebrates the charisma and flair of a self-taught gypsy flamenco dancer who in the 1960s-80s rose to international stardom. Filled with footage of spectacular flamenco dance and music, this film brings us under the skin and into the irrepressible spirit of this eccentric woman with an uncanny gift for rhythm who, despite all odds, enjoys a comeback in her late 60s.
