Flamenco at 5:15

Flamenco at 5:15 follows a Canadian Flamenco dance class as they learn from two legendary Spanish dance teachers.

Filmed as a “fly-on-the-wall” documentary, the film lets the dancing and teaching scenes unfold with no narration.

By letting the scenes unfold “as is”, the film becomes unintrusive to the viewer. A feature which creates a stronger focus on the dancers and the intensity of their emotions.

By letting the watcher follow the teaching classes by being part of, and close to, the dancing group – it accentuates the unforgettable images of the dancers and unique insights into the Spanish Flamenco soul.

¡Ándele! And awaken your rhythm as we join Flamenco at 5:15.
