As a child, we traveled a lot and when I was a teenager, we lived in France for a year. Ever since then, I've been interested in other cultures and creating bridges between cultures. My videos are a reflection of these interests, plus I love of music and dance and believe the arts are a wonderful way to communicate our differing values. When I decided to turn to become a filmmaker (after three earlier careers including several years as a history professor), it was natural for me to create work focused on different cultures, and on the arts. After all, learning about others can be a great pleasure, and opens doors to different ways of doing things. I hope my work brings as much pleasure to you as it has to me. Eve A. Ma
Episode 2 focuses on flamenco's connection with other occupations, such as fishermen, fish mongers, mining,
blacksmiths and prisoners in the jails. There is also a section about gitanos' singing in India and in "Mesopotania,"
halfway between India and Spain.
This episode is enriched by flamenco solos performed by la Elu de Jerez, Manuel de Malena, Manuel Agujetas, Antonio Agujetas, and Jairo Amaya.
