Thursday, December 9
8:30pm film
9:45pm tango party
Washington DCJCC
Washington, DC

The tango, widely recognized as an integral part of Argentina’s culture, is enjoying a revival among young Argentineans today. But few know that Jewish musicians who fled Russia for Buenos Aires at the end of the 19th Century contributed greatly to the development and romance of tango music. Family memories and enticing historic recordings bring to life the talented figures in this engaging story of cultural and artistic fusion to life. The film is narrated by journalist and historian José Judkovski and based upon his book of the same title. (Argentina, 2009, video, documentary, 62 min, Spanish w/English subtitles, Dir: Gabriel Pomeraniec)
