Directed by German Kral
The life and love story of Argentina’s most famous tango dancers María Nieves Rego (80) and Juan Carlos Copes (83) is revealed in this documentary/performance hybrid. While telling their life stories to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, María and Juan’s early lives are interpreted by the dancers.
Having met when they were fourteen and seventeen, the two worked together for over fifty tumultuous years marked by a grand passion, alcohol abuse, painful separations, and a love for tango. 2015, Germany/Argentina, DCP, in Spanish with English subtitles, 85 minutes.
Following the screenings, members of the Louisville Argentine Tango Society will share their love of the dance with a milonga, an Argentine Tango social dance, in which audience members can watch or join in dancing in the Speed Cinema lobby.
