Argentina’s decision to establish the Astor Piazzolla Memorial enabled this documentary’s production. Son of an impoverished immigrant family in New York, Piazzolla guided new trends in tango through non-traditional yet powerful performances and works that are still considered masterpieces. The film is an exceptional documentary that shows everything about Piazzolla, the figure who elevated the state of tango from dance music to art.
