“Brava! The irresistible power of La Chana palpably burst[s] from the screen.” (Hollywood Reporter)
With arms upraised, her face a mask of concentrated emotion, her feet a tattoo of intricate rhythms, the flamenco star La Chana communicates all of life’s passions and pain. This film, abounding with spectacular dance and music, celebrates the self-taught gitana (“gypsy”) prodigy whose dazzling performances brought her international stardom in the 1960s—before she suddenly vanished from the public eye. In her baroque boudoir in Barcelona, La Chana, now in her late 60s, prepares for what will become her triumphant, unlikely comeback.
