A new trailer has been released for the upcoming film Our Last Tango which will be released in cinemas on the 22nd September.
Directed by German Kral and executive produced by Wim Wenders, Our Last Tango is a story of love between two of the most famous dancers in tango’s history as well as their love of the tango.
María Nieves Rego (83) and Juan Carlos Copes (86) met when they were 14 and 17, and they danced together for nearly fifty years. In all those years they loved and hated each other and went through several painful separations but always got back together. No other man danced like Juan and no other woman danced like María! Eventually, he left her for good for a woman 20 years younger with whom he fathered two children.
Now, at the end of their lives, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion. In Our Last Tango Juan and María tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria’s lives into incredible tango-choreographies.
As well as telling the story Juan and Maria, the film also explores the history of the tango and the influence the couple had on the dance in the last fifty years.
The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2015 and also screened at Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival, Japan and the Berlin International Film Festival.
