12 Tangos

Finally, someone has made a really good documentary about tango. Check out this clip of the film "12 Tangos," by Arne Birkenstock:

Synopsis: In “La Catedral”, a 200-year-old granary in Buenos Aires, some of the towns best dancers join for the weekly tango ball. The film narrates the story of these dancers and their ancestors in 12 tangos, including feelings of failed hope, crisis, immigration and emigration. The past, the present and the future of our protagonists also reflect the history of the tango itself, and give an accurate impression of present-day Buenos Aires. For the documentary feature “12 Tangos“ Arne Birkenstock and his musical Director Luis Borda have assembled a true Argentine Tango all-star orchestra with Juan José Libertella, Jorge Sobral, Julio Pane, Lidia Borda, Luis Borda and many more.
