Overview

Jorge Zanada's 66-minute 1988 documentary Tango: Our Dance investigates the tango as a phenomenon that blossomed from Argentinian soil -- exploring and evaluating its place in Argentina's culture, society, and lore -- as well as the undercurrents of machismo that belie the specific movements of the dance. Zanada interviews numerous amateur tango dancers -- milongueros -- who discuss the relevance of the tradition for themselves, their passionately charged experiences performing the movements, and the ways they have spun the dance off into the development of idiosyncratic variations. He also speaks with such celebrity tango aficionados as Robert Duvall (who, indeed, directed the feature Assassination Tango for producer Francis Ford Coppola, years after Zanada first shot this film), and Juan Carlos Copes, the star of Broadway's acclaimed Tango Argentino.
