Tango Underpants (Short Film)

Ταινία μικρού μήκους “Tango Underpants”

Tango Underpants tells the story of Carolyn – a young Australian backpacker who, after a bad breakup and too long on the road, has completely lost her mojo. However, all of that changes when she reaches South America. Here, she discovers not only the wonders of the Tango dance and the people, but also the vital importance of the right underwear.

Based on a short story by Carolyn Swindell published by Lonely Planet, Tango Underpants is a short film (13 minutes) written by John Collee; starring Emma Booth; directed by Miranda Edmonds and Khrob Edmonds; photographed by Denson Baker; music by Guy Gross, and produced by Tania Chambers, Stephen Van Mil and Miranda Edmonds. The film was produced in Buenos Aires, Argentina in June 2013, in collaboration with an Argentinian production company Ojala Productions. It was funded predominantly by ScreenWest’s 3-to-1 Initiative through which over $100,000 was raised for the film’s production.

Since then, Tango Underpants has screened nationally and internationally via the festival circuit, TV broadcast, and a select number of exclusive sales to outlets such as QANTAS and SBS2. It has screened at Palm Springs International Film Festival, Flickerfest, St Kilda Film Festival, Newport Beach Film Festival and will screen at Cannes 2015 as part of the Cinephiles program this year.
