LA CHANA

LA CHANA

The beat goes on in Lucija Stojevic’s La Chana, a documentary portrait of the eponymous living legend of Spanish flamenco dancing. Buoyed by the passionate energy of its irrepressible sexagenarian subject, it’s a lively compendium of rousing archival materials and present-day fly-on-the-wall footage as the Catalan superstar nicknamed La Chana surveys the emotional rollercoaster of her tough life and remarkable career while gearing up for one last comeback. (Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter)

LUCIJA STOJEVIC studied architectural design at the University of Edinburgh as well as directing and editing at the Prague Film School. She has produced over thirty short format documentaries. Her work has been displayed in various exhibitions around the world. In 2014, Stojevic established Noon Films, a production company focusing on creative documentaries in Barcelona. Her La Chana premiered at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam in 2016 and won the Audience Award. // Films (selection): La Chana (2016, doc)
