I DIE OF SADNESS CRYING FOR YOU
O.V in English and Spanish subtitled in English and Spanish
Following the trace of renown artists like Marifé de Triana and Lola Flores, the British director and artist Nina Danino makes a surprising and exciting analysis in a contemporary and feminist tone of the "copla". Starting from a sentimental journey through the songs performed by her mother, Danino strips down the lyrics and idiosyncrasy of the genre with fervor and admiration, and elaborates a picture of that "very much a woman" interpreter. A new dimension to a cultural manifestation that from so close, it is difficult to ponder.
