PICHUCO - Movie Screening + Tango Performance

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Pichuco is an award-winning documentary about the music and life of Aníbal Troilo, an Argentine Tango giant who was born 100 years ago, but whose music is still being danced all over the world every night of the week. The movie was made in Buenos Aires, the birth place of Argentine Tango. The screening will be followed by a short Tango performance put together by some of the finest instructors and performers from the Bay Area.

Synopsis:
A teacher of the School of Popular Music in Avellaneda, together with his students, took on the project of digitizing ~500 original, handwritten arrangements of Aníbal “Pichuco” Troilo orchestra. Through interviews of musicians from different generations and styles, this documentary takes us to a musical tour through the work of one of the most influential characters in the history of Tango and Argentine music.

Critical Acclaim and Awards:
“The best documentary I saw in all of the BAFICI.” – Frederick Vonchamb – Cinema Chambón
“Martin Turnes’ documentary … highlights with knowledge, depth and good rhythm, the musician’s enormous legacy” – Javier Porta Fouz – Programador BAFICI
“A film made with feeling and intelligence, and one that also offers some unforgettable musical moments” – Roger Koza – Otros Cines – Con los Ojos abiertos
“Turnes manages to capture an homage to Aníbal Troilo though a purely cinematographic experience which makes this film stand out within the documentary genre.” – Carlos Herrera – Nivelarte criticas
