Our Last Tango (NI Premiere)

Sunday 26 Nov 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

Argentine tango dancers María Nieves Rego and Juan Carlos Copes discuss their personal and professional relationship.

Executive Produced by Wim Wenders, Our Last Tango is the fascinating true love story of the most famous dancers in tango’s history. And the story of their tremendous love of tango. María Nieves Rego (81) and Juan Carlos Copes (84) met when they were 14 and 17, and they danced together for nearly fifty years.

Through all those years they loved and hated each other and went through several painful separations, but always got back together. Now, Juan and María are willing to open up about their love, their hatred, and their passion. In Our Last Tango Juan and María tell their story to a group of young tango dancers and choreographers from Buenos Aires, who transform the most beautiful, moving and dramatic moments of Juan and Maria's lives into incredible tango-choreographies.

These beautifully-shot choreographies compliment the soul-searching interviews and documentary moments of the film to make this an unforgettable journey into the heart of the tango.
