She is the Matador – CLFF

April 24, 2010 @ 5:15 pm - 7:30 pm


Spain, 2009, 62 min.

Directors: Gemma Cubero, Celeste Carrasco

Nothing expresses Spain’s traditionally rigid gender roles more powerfully than the image of the male matador. So sacred was the bullfighter’s masculinity to Spanish identity that a 1908 law barred women from the sport. This film reveals the surprising history of the women who made such a law unnecessary and offers fascinating profiles of two female matadors currently in the arena: the acclaimed Mari Paz Vega and Italian-born, Eva Florencia. Winner of All Access Creative Promise Award for Documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival.
