Special Tango Documentary Film Seattle Premiere: For the Love of Tango

 

About the film:

Through the story of one blind man’s journey we explore the intoxicating, exciting and complex world that is Argentine Tango.  

We delve into the lives of professional Tango dancers and teachers, including Tango Master: Jorge Torres of Broadway’s: ‘Forever Tango’, Tango performers Mayte Valdes and Carlos Barrionuevo among others, as well as ‘regular people and lovers’ of the dance whose life has changed as a result of being immersed in it.   As Suki Shorer, former NY City Ballet Prima ballerina with Balanchine and the NYC Ballet reminds us:   ‘It is an addiction.... but a healthy one.’   For the Love of Tango shows how we can communicate with one another beyond all barriers of race, language, age or physical limitations. It is truly a universal language that can inspire and connect us beyond the surface.  In the end, beyond the fancy foot work, beautiful dresses, high heels and dazzling performances, Tango is....... really about the discovery of oneself.

Filmed on location in the Czech Republic, Germany, Canada and the United States (Hawaii, New York, Seattle and Portland) Shot on the Red One.
