‘Our Last Tango’ to screen nationally
The feature documentary Our Last Tango will be presented in cinemas nationally on Thursday, March 24. Directed by German Kral and executive produced by Wim Wenders (think Pina), the film tells the story of María Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes, the two most famous dancers in tango’s history.
María Nieves Rego, now 80 years old, and Juan Carlos Copes, now 83, originally met as teenagers. “In Buenos Aires in the 1940s, she was the most beautiful girl in the neighbourhood. He could not dance at all. But they had a dream. Together they changed the history of tango,” details Sharmill Films.
In the film, Rego and Copes reflect back on the 50 years they danced together, opening up about their love, their hatred and their passion. Their lives are transformed into incredible tango-choreographies.
The Hollywood Reporter calls Our Last Tango “engrossing,” adding that it “balances between a studious fascination with the dance form’s history and an embrace of the passions it stokes.”
