Tango by Carlos Saura( Visual )

74 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the film tells the story of director Mario Suarez's quest to make the ultimate tango film. Lonely after his wife (one of the film's stars) has left him, Mario must find the themes that will hold the film together, while simultaneously permitting his musicians and dancers the freedom of expression that is necessary to satisfy the tango-hungry Argentine audience. Things become complicated when Mario falls in love with Elena, a beautiful and talented young dancer who is the girlfriend of the powerful and dangerous Angelo Larroca, an investor in the picture. And Mario's creative vision is challenged by his investors when he plans a scene that recreates Argentina's dark years of political suppression and "disappearances."

Tratos y retratos( Visual )

2 editions published in 1998 in Spanish and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the world of 1950s Spanish art cinema, Carlos Saura keeps some very prestigious company with other noted Spanish directors-- Berlanga, Bardem, and Luis Buñuel. In the beginning, Saura labored under the iron censorship of the fascist Franco regime, but he later won international recognition for his portrayals of life stunted by political oppression. In later films, such as the Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and Flamenco, Saura's talent for injecting his films with assurance and vigor, punctuated by unforgettable moments of poetry, shines forth. In this program, Saura discusses his filmmaking techniques, and how, by incorporating a mixture of incisiveness, humor, action, and romance, he conveys the gist of Spanish and Latin culture to world audiences
