The production and edition of this piece was a big technical challenge, to bring back to life an icon of modernity and diversity of the twentieth century as was Lola Flores. It required a thorough casting search throughout Spain, to find someone with similar features to give viability to the artificial intelligence technique DEEP FAKE. Getting the voice, face and gestures of the artist was a technical challenge: hours of audiovisual material, more than 5,000 images and a meticulous process of composition and post-production. At the same time, a software that did not yet exist in Spain was developed to modulate her voice and fine-tune the audio, in addition to a very long editing process to give the piece the rhythm it needed. The shooting took three days in Malaga and the casting was entirely made up of real people from the same city.
