Last Tango @ Berlinale Lola
Berlin International Film Festival (Berlin, Germany)
After its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (Docs section), the german-argentinian documentary film OUR LAST TANGO will be screened at the Lola Section of the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.
Executively produced by Wim Wenders and directed by Wenders‘ former student German Kral, OUR LAST TANGO is a story of love between the two most famous dancers in tango’s history. María Nieves Rego (81) and Juan Carlos Copes (84) met when they were 14 and 17, and they danced together for nearly fifty years. In all those years they loved and hated each other and went through several painful separations, but always got back together. In Our Last Tango Juan and María tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan’s and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies. These beautifully-shot choreographies compliment the soul-searching interviews and documentary moments of the film to make this an unforgettable journey into the heart of the tango.
