Matadors and actors share a sacrifice. Kaneza plays a legend of the bullfight.
We last saw Kaneza play prostitute Georgette in the Elevator Repair Service adaptation of The Sun Also Rises, Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel. Kaneza also plays legendary Spanish bullfighter Juan Belmonte García (1892-1962). She studied fighting footage and flamenco rhythms to resurrect 1920s Pamplona. Kaneza describes learning the ritual of the ring from memoirs of the matador himself.
