Flamenco star la Chana, characterized by her improvised and wild dancing, disappeared from the stage at the height of her career. Fifty years later, as she prepares for her last performance, “la Chana” reveals the secrets behind her disappearance, the reasons for her return and her intimate story of love and abuse.
In this portrait by Lucija Stojević of one of the most fascinating figures of flamenco history, la Chana’s dreams come to the surface through aging and acceptance. This documentary shows the strength of a woman who rose above tragedy and reinvented herself to become a legendary character.
