At age 80, former school teacher Nidia Temporelli decides to become a tango singer. Forming a bond with 36-year-old singer/guitarist Juan Villarreal, she begins performing at tango clubs across Buenos Aires, singing with a charm and intensity that amazes audiences and earns her a place as a contestant on a televised talent show. Packed with wisdom, humor, passion, and music, this lively documentary shows that it’s never too late to discover your inner artist.
Buenos Aires-based guitar/vocal duo Villarreal Crom will perform an in-theater concert before the screening and will stay for a post-film conversation.
This screening is presented in partnership with the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School. The full program (concert, film, and talkback) will last around three hours.
