The Embrace

A Documentary About Tango

Course: Story Telling
Professor: Gael Towey & Stephen Doyle

A short film about the Argentine tango, which is an accompanying social dance originating at the end of the 19th century in Buenos Aires.

There’s no real tango if there’s no real embrace.
The embrace refers to physical closeness and connection between the dancers as they move together in the dance. During one tango dance, the torsos are connected as one, the hearts beat as one.

Through the story of Ciko and Carlos, this documentary explores how trust, communication, and understanding shape relationships both on and off the dance floor.
