Relationships and cinema are the central themes in this very personal, endearing film. Mostly lighthearted but sparkling with intensity, TANGO OF YEARNING is a marvelous tribute to the anguish and longing inherent both in human relationships and on the silver screen.
"I wonder sometimes why many concepts and terms such as "reality" and "authenticity" have always been behind the fluid creativity expressed in the highlighted artistic works emerging from our region since art in general has always been the best response to all kinds of rupture imposed by oblivion.
In that sense, image could be nothing but a free, rather metaphoric, zone where memory can find its way to survival...In every film I’ve made, I was hopefully looking for the moment that revealed how much people were eager to reconstruct their own stories with their own language(s), as well as mine."
—Director Mohammed Soueid
