7:30pm - Film: Legends of the Tango Dance

This film, with subtitles in English, tells the stories of tango legends in their own words.  They talk and they dance; and they do so in places used for tango.  The film was shown in New York on 6 June.  This will be the first showing in the UK and we are grateful to The Argentine Tango Society in New York for giving us the opportunity to show it.
