Kumpanìa is Katina Dunn’s exhilarating documentary about the flamenco community in Los Angeles, California. Dunn interviews the dancers, singers, players and cultural historians. She provides astounding performances of music, voice, and dance. Narrator Bruce Bisenz is our host – and a flamenco-loving photographer who has taken thousands of performance stills for the artists many of which are featured in the film.
Kumpanìa is a thoroughly delightful film. If one is going to make a film about as passionate a subject as flamenco, the unspoken requirement is that the film must be produced with that level and quality of passion. Katina Dunn has fulfilled that requirement.
