We are pleased to inform you that the annual festival Ventana Fiesta is returning to the Frankston Arts Centre in February and March and the Embassy is very pleased to collaborate with the organisers. The festival’s highlights include tango concert ‘Anthology of Tango’ and free screening of ‘Our Last Tango’.
Songmakers Australia, directed by the Argentine pianist Andrea Katz, will join forces with guest musicians from Buenos Aires Rodolfo Roballos and Soledad Grigera, directors of the Academia Tango Club, as well as with Ezequiel Villanueva Herman and Luciano Sanchez Nobati to present an evening of tango. The concert will take place on 3 March, at 8:00pm, at the Frankston Arts Centre.
On 22 March, at 6:30pm, you are invited to a free screening of the Argentine documentary film ‘Our Last Tango’ that will take place in the Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre. ‘Our Last Tango’ is a story about the life and love of two of the most famous tango dancers of the 20th century. The documentary maker German Kral chronicles the decades’ long career of Argentine tango legends Maria Nieves and Juan Carlos Copes, who met in the late 40s when she was 14 and he was 17. They danced together for nearly fifty years and during that time they loved and hated each other and went through several painful breakups. Now both in their eighties, they are willing to open their hearts about their passion.
‘Our Last Tango’ was selected to be part of several film festivals including Toronto International Film Festival, Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival, Internationale Hofer Filmtage and Mar del Plata International Film Festival.
