Six short stories involving people out for vengeance.

A lover's betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control
Tango our dance = Tango baile nuestro( Visual )

8 editions published between 1985 and 2006 in Spanish and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sensuality and stylized ritual of the tango are captured in this illuminating documentary. Director Jorge Zanada spent years researching and recording the tango's place in Argentine culture and exploring the machismo that drives the dance. Most riveting are the milongueros - the amateur dancers who preserve the pure, traditional steps. Their intimate stories about their personal experiences reveal the intensity that feed their individual tango styles. Numerous tango aficionados, including actors Robert Duvall and Juan Carlos Copes (star of Broadway's Tango Argentino), make special appearances."--Container

El Menemato : radiografía de dos años de gobierno de Carlos Menem( Book )

6 editions published in 1991 in Spanish and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seven hostile essays examine the negative aspects of Menem's first two years in office. Describe Menem's populist electoral campaign from his caravan, the menemovil and the economic crisis that forced Alfonsín to turn over power early. Then essays contrast Menem's 'man of the people' political style with the corruption that pervades his government and the harsh economic consequences of neoliberalism. Also evaluate his pardons of convicted military chiefs and his pro-US foreign policy. Authors are puzzled by Menem's continued popularity and are alarmed by what they perceive to be a decline into barbarism"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57

Asesinato en el senado de la nación by Juan José Jusid( Visual )

4 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a true incident that happened in 1935 in the Argentine Senate, this fictionalized account of the murder of a senator avoids the main issue of the killing: those accused of complicity in the murder were acquitted by the senators of the ruling Conservative Party. This film focuses on the character and life of the murderer instead of addressing the serious political corruption of the time. The intended victim, the democratic leader Lisandro De La Torre (Pepe Soriano) attacked the government for selling out the nation's lucrative meat-packing trade to a foreign company, and when ex-police chief Valdez-Cora (Miguel Angle Solá) tried to gun De La Torre down in the parliament building, he killed another senator, Enzo Bordabehere (Arturo Bonín) by accident. The corruption and abuses of Valdez-Cora cause his own Conservative Party to throw him off the police force, at which point he becomes the bodyguard of a senator and cattle rancher (in reality, he was hired by the Minister of Agriculture as a bodyguard). The exploits of Valdez-Cora get him involved in the world of prostitution and eventually force his wife and daughter to leave him for good. His life gives ample play to scenes of sex and violence, although the lead actors rise above these lower levels of the script (Eleanor Mannikka) --
