Love Me Again 24 min
The obsession of a woman with Argentinian tango fashions a world where fantasy and remembrance impinge on reality. Facing a crisis of life and love, a woman holds tightly to the dance that weaves through the fabric of her life creating a tenuous balance between the fantasy and the art of Argentinian Tango. She is driven to complete herself through dance, hoping to find happiness and love and in her passion for tango, searching for an intimate connection that was lost long ago. Poetically unveiling the emotions of Argentine Tango dancer, the film raises important issues of self-expression and liberation for women.
