IN THE PRESS

"The irresistible power of La Chana palpably burst[s] from the screen. ¡Brava!”  - Neil Young, Hollywood Reporter

​*********************************************

"La Chana proves that no matter how long you have been down, if you find the strength in yourself to carry on, you can never be counted out. La Chana is one of the best crowd pleasers at the [Hot Docs] festival this year, but also a poignant look at one woman’s journey back from an abusive situation. It’s a biography that isn’t only inspiring, but also important.”  - Andrew Parker, Toronto Film Scene

​*********************************************

"A whirlwind of passion and thrilling performances infuses this tautly edited profile of Spanish flamenco dance legend. Her body has aged; her spirit and soul still burn white hot."  - Linda Barnard, The Star

​*********************************************

"A deep portrait made with emotion and art.” Maricel Chavarría - La Vanguardia

​*********************************************

"This biography edited to the rhythm of flamenco footwork will draw you in like the hurricane that this Catalan dancer continues to be (...)  I found the documentary breathtaking!”  - Enric Albero, Caimán Cuadernos de Cine

​*********************************************

"Stojevic’s intimate bond with her subject results in a film that teaches audiences about an art form they might not know about while also fully rendering a portrait of one of flamenco’s most gifted practitioners."  - Caroline Jones, Washington City Paper

​*********************************************

"On some level, most women’s sense of worth is tied to their bodies: its age, appearance, or health. This is especially true of female dancers — who build their entire career around their body’s physical capabilities. “La Chana” depicts the physical and emotional toll the dance profession takes on women, particularly those nearing the end of their careers. ”  - Women and Hollywood

​*********************************************

"A completely engrossing, beautifully heartwarming, and an all-around wonderful character piece on a fascinating woman. ”  - Lisa Gallagher, Medium/Muff Blog

​*********************************************

"Lucija Stojevic’s La Chana is hard to describe in words, for its true power is expressed through the art of the flamenco and one woman’s passion for it. The audience was moved to tears tonight, and I felt a wide range of emotions due to the film’s final performance–which perfectly expresses the challenges and obstacles “La Chana” (Antonia Santiago Amador) has overcome in her life"  - Michael McNeely, Dorkshelf
