Midsummer Night’s Tango
Finnish Director Aki Kaurismäki claims that the Finns invented Tango. Is he serious? Or is this just his absurd sense of humor?
Viviane Blumenschein's unique documentary follows three Argentine musicians who travel to Finland to find out. Singer Chino Laborde, guitarist Diego Dipi Kvitko, and bandoneonist Pablo Greco discover the rich tradition of tango as it exists in this unlikely Nordic country. Filled with humor, music, dance, and surprise, Midsummer Night's Tango is an illuminating journey into the global village of shared culture and the joy it brings.
