la-chana

Saturday 29 September 2018

Film screening of ‘La Chana’ as part of the London Spanish Film Festival and in association with the Peña Flamenca de Londres which helped sponsor this award-winning film by director Lucija Stojevic. La Chana was one of the greatest stars in the flamenco world, captivating audiences worldwide with her innovative style and breathtaking use of rhythm in the 1960s and 1970s. Peter Sellers, with whom she features in The Bobo (1967), invited her to Hollywood. Instead, at the peak of her career, she disappeared from the scene. Stojevic looks at the clashes between La Chana’s artistic career and her private life, as well as the position of women in gypsy culture. The film follows this unique flamenco artist as she prepares for a final show, a phenomenal seated performance which she repeated at this year’s London Flamenco Festival.
In Spanish with English subtitles. Followed by a Q&A about the making of the film.
Time: 6.30pm
Cost: £12 (concessions £11). Buy tickets online.
Venue: The Regent Street Cinema, University of Westminster, 307 Upper Regent Street, London W1B 2HW
