A brilliant documentary on Flamenco

Flamenco at 5:15 by Cynthia Scott…
One of the most astonishing documentaries I have ever seen. It’s impressive. It’s a must-see. And I think you have to see it more than once to start understanding it, especially if you don’t do flamenco. 🙂
“This Oscar®-winning short film is an impressionistic record of a flamenco dance class given to senior students of the National Ballet School of Canada by two great teachers from Spain, Susana and Antonio Robledo. The film shows the beautiful young North American dancers–inspired by the flamenco rhythms and mesmerized by Susana’s extraordinary energy–joyously merging with an ancient gypsy culture.”
