For Spaniards nothing has expressed their country's traditionally rigid gender roles more powerfully than the image of the male matador. Ella Es el Matador offers fascinating profiles of two female matadors currently in the arena. These women are gender pioneers by necessity. But what emerges as their truest motivation is their passion for bullfighting and the pursuit of a dream.
