Movie Reviews

Ole!
G. Morvillo | 05/25/2006

"A great little documentary of the trails and tribulations of being a Flamenco Artist in Boston Ma. Great footage of Her Great aunt including a clip of Carmen Amaya and a younger Sabicas playing for wounded troops during WWII. I must say Omayra has a lot of Duende (flamenco Sprit) and is a fist rate Flamenco dancer in her own right!!"
Lovely video!

"Hola,
Omayra Amaya has shared herself in this film, which is a very intimate presentation of her life and dance. A good film if you are interested in the flamenco behind flamenco. Insightful, and, of course, always great music & dance. Omayra is definitely gitano puro..."
Dazzling, I just wish it were longer!

"No, it's not an ethnographic documentary, and it's not a survey of the whole genre, but it's a very powerful hour of performances, interviews, backstage footage, and more from a breathtaking talent and her ensemble. The archival clips of her aunt Carmen Amaya are astonishing and unforgettable. While nothing can compare to the power of a live show by this caliber of talent, this video does document the energy and spirit of the music and work."

"The video can be a little slow, but it gives insight and perspectives about the history and culture of the Gypsy. My students particularly loved the dancing by Carmen Amaya!"
