This three-part Spanish documentary by Paco Millan explores the international reach of flamenco culture, showing its roots in Gypsy Spain and raising questions about globalism and authenticity as dancers and musicians in New York and Tokyo emulate and adapt the form for their own purposes. Is flamenco a style easily translated, or an inherently Spanish phenomenon that loses power and depth when practiced by non-Spaniards? Millan’s answer is sluggishly delivered, but he seems to believe the former. In English and subtitled Spanish and Japanese. 93 min.
