Before Digital Photography came to be the normal ways of photographing, and Photoshop a mainstream tool for creative photographers, there was creative photography and there was Ouka Lele. She was one of the muses of La Movida in the 1980s, an exhibited well-known photographer. Her trademark were her hand-colored photos, but she is a painter, serygrapher; movie, theater and opera designer, and poet.

This documentary is a retrospective look at the life and work of Ouka Lele. A very intimate film, more a memoir than anything else, as is mostly her letting us enter her personal, professional and creative World, and sharing some of her personal secrets with us.

Filmed during a period of five years, the film offers unknown information about the artist, from her childhood, to her dangerous illness and, most importantly, about her artistic career.

A good part of the documentary revolves about the painting of a 300-metre floral mural in the small town of Ceutí (Murcia) and the whole creative process with her joy, doubts, fears, and hopes.

I used to love Ouka Lele's photos and was very intrigued by her in the past, so I found this documentary very interesting. If you are interested in La Movida this is also a good documentary to watch, and if you are an artist, ditto. Perhaps irrelevant for other people. However, she is a living legend in Spain, and a reputed artist in Europe.
