NO, A FLAMENCO TALE
Original Title: NO UN CUENTO FLAMENCO
Running Time: 75min
Film Year: 2016
A beguiling fusion of thrilling cinema and passionate music, NO, A Flamenco Tale sweeps us off to a land where the joys and hardships of life are expressed in breathtaking spectacle and song.
Clapping hands, stamping feet, stirring singing, intricate guitar and arresting dance: flamenco is a tradition of bold, soul-piercing gestures. Spanish director José Luis Tirado matches these gestures with a loose story about No, a dancer who works at a small venue in Seville’s Triana Market. At times No feels alienated by the world she inhabits, yet she finds communion in sundry public spaces where her dance provokes reactions from fellow citizens.
Let NO take hold of your senses—and you too will be provoked, inspired and moved. –Jaie Laplante
