12 Tangos – Adios Buenos Aires tells the story of several tangueros in crisis-ridden Buenos Aires. When the tango was created, their grandparents, who had come from Italy and Spain, were among the millions of immigrants, stranded at the Rio de la Plata. Today, their grandchildren are heading in the opposite direction: back to Europe.
In 12 Tangos, recorded live in the hottest tango hall in town and performed by some of Argentina’s finest musicians, the film narrates the story of crisis and immigration – and connects the sentiments of its protagonists with the music, the lyrics and the dance steps of the tango.
