O.V. Spanish

Back in 2017, just as she was preparing her first album, Banzai, and at only 26 years old, news broke out about the death of Ana Isabel García, better known as Gata Cattana: rapper, poet and politologist from Córdoba, a key vindicative artist at a time of the rise of feminism in Spain. After three years of research and archive research, Juanma Sayalonga and David Sainz (Malviviendo) deliver this film about her imprint and legacy, including testimonies from her family, friends and personalities such as Juancho Marqués, Alejandra Martínez De Miguel, Sara Socas, Frank T and Mala Rodriguez, as well as unpublished material from the childhood, adolescence and professional career of a cultured and groundbreaking figure, an irreplaceable "street" figure.
