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)
