Vaginal Davis Presents Rising Stars, Falling Stars – We Must Have Music!

On November 30, our archivist Vaginal Davis presents EL TANGO ES UNA HISTORIA (Tango is a Story, Mexico 1983): Humberto Rios originally only wanted to document the first tango festival to take place in his home in exile of Mexico in June 1980 and above all the three most famous representatives of tango music who appeared there: Osvaldo Pugliese, the old master, Astor Piazzolla, the renewer, and Susana Rinaldi, the most vehement voice in tango. But the political events in the military run Argentina did not just influence the artists’ performances but also the film itself.
