Synopsis

Bailar la muerte (Dancing with Death) narrates the convergence of three stories: the history of flamenco in Spain and in exile, the history of Spanish cinema, and the history of Spain during Franco’s dictatorship. By exploring the different experiences of flamenco in inland Spain and in exile, the documentary attempts to trace the visual representation of a certain Spanish identity and culture – one that was influenced and manipulated from both perspectives.
