BETWEEN A TANGO AND A DANZON - ENTRE UN TANGO Y UN DANZÓN
(2018 Col 60') Ντοκιμαντέρ


The filmmaker travels to Havana, Matanzas and Gibara to explore the cultural and historical influences of tango and danzon in Cuba’s society today. The documentary includes scenes with dancers, singers and musicians in neighborhood peñas and milongas. Archival footage of legendary danzón and tango artists, such as Barbarito Diez, Carlos Gardel or Libertad Lamarque, add a nostalgic feeling. Through testimonies and interviews, the film reveals the efforts to revitalize the danzón, Cuban national dance, and to attract the youth to this genre by mixing it with different rhythms, including jazz. Many of the interviewees highlight the need to increase the promotion of danzón and tango by the Cuban media. "Both of these musical genres," they say, "are considered part of the cultural patrimony of Cuba."
