Antenna Documentary Film Festival
10 October 2017 - 15 October 2017
Antonia Santiago Amador, the Catalan dancer better known as La Chana, was one of the greatest stars of the flamenco world, captivating audiences worldwide with her innovative style in the 1960s and ’70s.
Then she disappeared from the public eye for two decades. Director Lucija Stojevic gives us a deeply personal portrait of La Chana as she returns to the stage for a final performance, and unflinchingly examines the role of women in Spanish Gitano (‘Gypsy’) culture. Winner of the audience award at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), La Chana is a moving film about the gulf between the artist onstage and the life of the woman behind the scenes.
