Chan Park, tango instructor and Zen devotee, has produced a documentary, Tango Your Life,
The film tells my personal story living and dancing in Buenos Aires for four years, from 2008 to 2012. During the period I submerged myself in the traditional tango culture of Buenos Aires, dancing almost every day and interviewing many of the participants in the traditional tango scenes there in an attempt to understand what inspires people about this dance which is uniquely part of the culture of Buenos Aires, while also enriching lives of people around the world.
Then I discovered that tango is about feeling, which is inspired by music and shared between partners connected through embrace while walking together in unison. This documentary film tells my discovery of tango as culture, music, dance, friendship, love, and daily living in Buenos Aires, all of which have helped discover my inner passion for life.
Available at Amazon.
