One of the most beloved popular music scenes in the world, tango's traditional music and dance has become a local and international obsession.
This faithful and exhilarating representation of the 5th Buenos Aires Tango Festival brings to the screen all the squeezes of the accordion, quick kicks, and guttural songs of heartbreak, deceit and national pride.
Today's biggest names in tango perform on stage and off, from the hilariously tense preparations to dozens of performances and intimate interviews with established and rising stars.
The 9 day event features over 300 couples on 9 stage, witnessed by nearly a quarter million spectators. Abrazos: Tango In Buenos Aires captures the electricity of the festival and bears witness to the fact that Tango is a living and constantly evolving art form.
