Nice Tango Videos :: Tango, A Message from the Concrete Jungle (2013)

So on Vimeo (which I like better than YouTube, because it's more film-maker-ey and artsy-fartsy) there are lots of people trying their hands at amateur shorts and such, as well as pros. People wanting to tell a tango story using video as their medium. Tons and tons. So many that it would be difficult/impossible to sift and parse through all of them. There almost needs to be an TangoIMDB of all of the best. Feature length films with tango elements in them (very few), documentaries (more), and shorts, probably in the thousands.

Anyway, just blathering.

Here's a nice one.

The city of Buenos Aires, the poem and this intimate partner dancing inspired us to shoot this video.
