"The Day You Love Me"
1986
Directed by Sergio Dow

Winner of the Casa de las Americas award for Best Latin American feature, this humorous period film recaptures 1935, the year of Juan Vicente Gomez' dictatorship when Venezuela played host to the great tango singer Carlos Gardel as he presented his film The Day You Love Me. Romance and politics clash, exposing the lies, hopes and false dreams of an era on the eve of change as a small city meets, for the first time, the King of the Tango. Spanish with English subtitles. 80 minutes.
