Experience the passion of a live tango performance by Siempre Tango, Adelaide accompanied by Argentinean flavours followed by the special screening of TANGO GLORIES.
WEDNESDAY 13 MAY
8pm arrivals, for 8.45pm screening
FERMÍN, GLORIAS DEL TANGO (TANGO GLORIES)
Dramatic, colourful and surreal, like tango, the film calls to attention the basic need for connection, passion and forgiveness in life.
Featuring extraordinarily moving performances and stunning dance numbers, this magical story follows Ezequiel, a psychiatrist at a Buenos Aires hospital. When he meets 85-year-old Fermín, a man who curiously expresses himself through the lyrics and titles of old tango songs, Ezequiel is intrigued by his condition which has not improved for decades.
As he probes the cause, the pair begin to connect. Fermín starts to make revelations about his chequered and dramatic past, offering clues to his predicament. Through the blossoming friendship and a newfound love interest in Fermín’s daughter, Ezequiel starts to gain an insight into tango, a cultural expression he had taken for granted. Through this, he uncovers a vibrant, artistic, and exciting Argentina of the past.

‘La cumparsita’ (The Little Carnival Procession) is the most famous tango of all time. It is to the tango what the ‘Blue Danube’ is to the waltz.
Written around 1917 by the Uruguayan Gerardo Hernan Matos Rodríguez (March 28, 1897 – April 25, 1948) as a marching tune for the student federation to which he belonged, it was turned into a tango by the bandleader Roberto Firpo (May 10, 1884 – June 14, 1969).
In 1924 lyrics by Pascual Contursi (November 18, 1888 – May 28, 1932) and Enrique Pedro Maroni (17 March 1887 – 30 December 1957) were added and the song was recorded by Carlos Gardel (born Charles Romuald Gardes; 11 December 1890 – 24 June 1935), with guitar accompaniment.
