Argentinian music from the eyes of master director Carlos Saura.
Having seduced audiences with his revered “flamenco trilogy,” Carlos Saura now returns to, amongst many other things, the allure of the tango, a subject he first broached with such enthusiasm in his 1998 docudrama of that name. But here his scope is much wider. Ravishing images from Argentina’s diverse regions combine with a series of immaculately choreographed dance pieces to create a swirling, intoxicating milieu that takes in all aspects of Argentine folk culture.
