Salles teams with Stantic, Santaolalla on dance pic
Brazil’s Walter Salles is teaming with Argentine producer Lita Stantic and composer Gustavo Santaolalla to produce “Cafe de los maestros,” a docu feature on tango music’s greatest living masters, some nearly 90 years old.
Pic will be produced by Lita Stantic Producciones in Buenos Aires, Salles’ Brazil-based Videofilmes and a new company that Santaollala is creating in Buenos Aires.
Pic profiles tango singers and musicians, including recognized greats like the 88-year-old Mariano Mores and the 89-year-old Horacio Salgan, plus forgotten artists such as Gabriel “el Chula” Clausi.
“Cafe” will climax with a live performance Aug. 24 in Buenos Aires’ Teatro Colon, shot by nine cameras.
