Forbidden Tango

Запретное Танго

The film documents three years of a Russian gay couple Misha and Otar organizing events of the Queer Tango in St. Petersburg. They are giving tango classes and introducing an alternative way of dancing to the traditional tango community in Russia. Through the winter Otar and Misha are preparing an international festival of Queer Tango, which is expected to happen in the end of the spring. A recent high level of the homophobia in Russia forces many Russian gays and lesbians to leave their families to find a refuge abroad. But when narrow-minded traditionalism and xenophobia are rife in the world, it is important to continue to dance tango no matter what gender, sexual orientation or country you are from.
