This fifty-minute tape contains substantial footage, all very short segments, of Omayra Amaya, who is a young woman with her own flamenco dance company in Boston. The clips are from class and performance. It contains a few precious black-and-white glimpses of Omayra's great-aunt, the immortal Carmen Amaya, considered by some the greatest flamenco dancer of all time, in performance.
Omayra and other family members discuss natural dancers versus classroom dancers, tradition versus experimentation, and other topics of interest to anyone studying any folk dance tradition.
A film of this length that tries to be both dance documentary and in-depth interview ends up being neither. The flashes of insight offered are tantalizing, but nothing more.
