Mariemma, the late classical Spanish dancer renowned for her castanets, her sophisticated choreography and for elevating the level of dancers’ technique throughout Spain, toured the world with her pianist and later her full company. This innovative documentary celebrates the artistry of Mariemma who continued in the tradition of Spanish dancers Argentina, Argentinita, and Pilar Lopez and includes visual recreations, rare footage, and interviews. Flamenco dancers Antonio Canales, Aída Gómez, Joaquín Cortés and Lola Greco, her protégées, describe Mariemma’s invaluable contribution in the film.
