About this Event

We're excited to announce another installment of the FilmYard Picnic series!

Three times a year ArtYard’s scheduled film offerings will be followed by a communal bring-your-own picnic dinner. Bring a brown bag or picnic basket and some drinks and stay after the film. Dine at our orange tables in the front gallery, and talk about the film with fellow humans. This is so much nicer than sitting alone at a computer screen bathed in blue light!

This second FilmYard Picnic will follow the screening of The Tango Lesson

Screening begins at 7:00 PM, picnic immediately following around 8:30 PM.

We look forward to seeing you here!

Film Description: Sally, a filmmaker and screenwriter suffering from writer's block, is dissatisfied with her film project, a murder mystery called Rage, which features the fashion industry. Taking a break, she travels to Paris, where she sees the dancer Pablo (Pablo Verón) performing tango. She becomes obsessed with the dance and offers Pablo a part in her film in exchange for dance lessons. The two become deeply involved as dancers and as lovers. Their emotional intimacy threatens the success of their dancing together. The film explores the conflict between the woman dancer accepting the man's lead in the dance, while the man must accept the woman's lead in the film. It is a love story and a showcase for Verón's dancing.

Length: 1 hr 42 mins

Director: Sally Potter

Released: 1997

“Even though it's self-conscious of its own sentimentality, it's surprisingly infectious.” -Film Journal International

“Most of the film had Potter and Veron dancing and that had me jumping with joy.” -Dennis Schwartz
