BBC Four – La Confiteria Ideal

This BBC4 documentary was filmed at my favorite tango venue, La Confiteria Ideal, during the 2002 Argentine crisis. In addition to the beautiful tango, it gives a snapshot of Buenos Aires in the middle of a financial disaster (well past the point of “crisis”).

Pay attention to the gentleman at the 50:00 mark, describing how they were trapped by poor government and corrupt politicians,

He lost his money, and talks about trying to rescue his money.

It was never to be.

Is the USA heading that way?
