CLFF Opening Night Gala: Night of Argentina

Argentina, 2013, 117 min.
Director: Hernán Findling and Oliver Kolker

Featuring an extraordinarily moving performance from Héctor Alterio and dazzling dance numbers, “Tango Glories (Fermín)” centers on psychiatrist Ezequiel Kaufman (Gaston Pauls, “Nine Queens”), who has been offered a four-year residency at a prestigious clinic. But, first, he must present a clinical case study and he finds the perfect one in 85-year-old Fermín Turdera (Alterio), who expresses himself through the lyrics and titles of tango songs. As Ezequiel digs deep into the causes of this unique phenomenon, he is reintroduced by Fermín to a cultural expression he took for granted and discovers that tango is more than just dance and music…it is a way of life, with a philosophy of its own.
