One of Latin America's signature dance styles gets examined from an unexpected angle in the vibrant, colorful documentary Tango Negro: The African Roots of Tango. Many South American nations, including Argentina and Uruguay, have a history of slavery and tango's roots are heavily intertwined with the culture and thrillingly percussive music of those slaves who were brought over from central Africa. Part concert film, part historical account, Tango Negro is a stirring tribute to the early, uncelebrated creators of one of the world's most beloved dance forms and is loaded with beautiful scenery, music and informative interviews with tango experts and fans.

The great thing about short comedy videos is if you don't like the video -- there's another clever one right behind it. There's a cool vibe at the Thalia. You can tell that the people in charge are doing this as a labor of love.
