“Every dancer is looking for the trance, to forget themselves. Every artist is looking for that. Rocío does not only do her show and then go away and repeat it—she’s looking for something every time. So when I met her, I recognized a very special artist. For me, she’s one of the best dancers in the history of flamenco. I didn’t want to do a straight biopic about her, absolutely not. What is special about Rocío is not herself as a person, but herself as a medium… Flamenco is about death; it is a very powerful music and people are touched, I am touched… The film is 100% flamenco; we tried to edit it to the flamenco rhythm to respect the music… I did this film for people who will look back in 50 years to know who this woman was and what flamenco was at the beginning of this century.”—Emilio Belmonte
