Fernanda y Bernarda, documental

Inseparable flamenco sisters

Fernanda, with her inspiring soleá, and Bernarda, known for her powerful bulería: the inseparable sisters are two of the greatest cantaoras in flamenco history, and representatives of the deepest, most ‘jondo’ gypsy singing.

This documentary travels from Utrera to Madrid (and tells how emotional it was for the family), from there to the 1964 World’s Fair in New York and the big stages of Paris. She shows why Fernanda and Bernarda can without a doubt be considered the Aretha Franklin and Billie Holiday of Andalusia. Even the great flamenco singer Camarón knew that the sisters at a ‘juerga’, a flamenco jam session, were simply peerless.

Starring: Paco del Gastor, Israel Fernández, José Mercé, Pepe Habichuela, Esperanza Fernández, Curro Fernández, Rosario Montoya “La Farruca”, Tony Bryant, Miguel Peña “El Funi”, Inés Bacán, Manuel Martín Martín, Lola Baena, Inés Suárez Jiménez, Diego Muñoz Jiménez, José María Velazquez Gaztelu, María Terremoto, Rosalía Gómez, Carmen Escribano, Tomasa Guerrero “La Macanita”

After its premiere in Spain, this film will have its European premiere during the Flamenco Biennale.
