An alluring melodrama inspired by the life of actress, singer and dancer Tita Merello, I Tita, a Life of Tango takes this fascinating figure from the golden age of Argentine cinema and gives her the sweeping treatment she deserves.

Born Laura Ana Merello, our resourceful, charismatic heroine goes from a childhood of destitution and tragedy to find ardent lovers, opulence and renown in Buenos Aires’ cabarets and concert halls and, eventually, the cinema, where she would enjoy a long and diverse career, leaving her indelible mark on such films as Morir en su ley, Los isleros and The Bastard.

Assembling a seductive audiovisual ambiance from the clothes, architecture and music of old Buenos Aires, writer-director María Teresa Costantini and her meticulous collaborators bring Tita’s wild life and times to vivid life.
