Flamenco: The Enduring Art of Inesita

Using old footage and photos we travel through time with Inesita as she shares about her distinctive performance career of 8 decades. The title is inspired by a lost short film that NYU students shot in 1962 featuring Inesita. 'Inesita: The Art of Flamenco.' The cameraman/ editor was Martin Scorsese (his first 16mm project.) This short features some footage from a work print from that shoot, which she found some years ago in her house. So as Inesita shares about the ever evolving but enduring art of flamenco, we get a little film history trivia. In 2010 UNESCO declared flamenco an 'Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity'.

Director Statement

This little documentary, "Flamenco: The Enduring Art of Inesita" is dear to me for many reasons. I am very grateful for the very private Inesita opening up to me about her life and sharing her stories. I realize and appreciate that she has trusted me with her story. Inesita has also afforded me the opportunity to perform flamenco ( a dream of mine) in her shows each year over the past 6 years. I don't get to perform much and I always look forward to working with her.
