    We are very pleased that our co-production “Midsummer Night’s Tango” will be shown on September 27 at 10pm at the Ars Independent Festival in Poland.

    The film follows three passionate and spirited tango musicians from Argentina, who are searching for the origins of tango. No one would have expected that they journey would bring them to Finland, a country that couldn’t be even more calm and peaceful.

    The Ars Independent Festival starts on September 23 in Katowize in Poland and presents a range of interdisciplinary “moving pictures” as a medium for artistic expression and space for critical discussion.
