MENESE

Remedios Málvarez, José Romero | Spain | 2019 | 81 min.
O.V in Spanish subtitled in English

Menese is the portrait of a free, indomitable artist who loved flamenco above it all. A vocalist politically committed to the era in which he was supposed to live, and who, under the guidance of his mentor Francisco Moreno Galván, revolutionized flamenco by taking it to cultural spaces and stages it had never reached before. Today those hymns are recovered and reinterpreted by young voices of women like Rocío Márquez, Laura Vital (with Raúl Rodríguez) and Rosario La Tremendita: the new revolutionary voices of today's flamenco.
