Tango in La Boca

La Boca – For some reason turistas flock to this grey, colourless neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. Previously, it housed the working class, who laboured in the port. Today, artists flog their creations, while others flog the usual souvenir junk. Restaurateurs stage tango dances outside to lure in diners. A scarf dance was thrown in to keep you alert. The musical accompaniment is Tango Forte by Dublex Inc. WARNING: This film contains live-action footage. Do not be frightened.
