Synopsis 

Ezequiel Kaufman (33) is a psychiatrist who works in a typical Buenos Aires public hospital. Spain and a 4-year research job vacancy arise, bringing Ezequiel a unique job opportunity. In order to apply for the position he is required to present a clinical case study. Among his patients is Fermín Turdera (85) (Héctor Alterio), a patient at the hospital for more than 10 years. Mr. Fermin expresses himself exclusively using the lyrics and titles of Tango Songs, a peculiar characteristic not understood by the doctors until Ezequiel comes on the scene. A great patient/doctor relationship develops between Ezequiel and Fermín. Through their relationship, Ezequiel discovers the tango and the customs of Argentina in the 40’s , when Fermín reveals his relationship with his two most intimate friends, Ciempiés and Clodomiro; and Zulma Prando his greatest love. Not only will Ezequiel navigate across the waters of the Tango underworld with Fermín, he will also find love when he meets Fermin’s granddaughter, Eva Turdera. Eva was raised by Fermín when her parents disappeared during the Military Dictatorship in the 1970’s. The treatment brings Fermín to an understanding of his own past, and to settle an old debt. Ezequiel, on the other hand, will be forced to decide his own future, based on his new life. A Tango Life.

WHAT ARE WE USING THE MONEY FOR?

The funds raised will go to covering the final stages of post-production finishing costs and release such as:

  • Festival submission fees (Sundance, Cannes, Toronto, Tribeca, Berlin, San Sebastian, and others)
  • Film Music Rights (for world release)
  • Translation and Subtitling Final DVD into English, Turkish, Russian, French
  • Editing various versions of the film to share in as many different outlets as possible: Theatrical, Domestic Broadcast, International Broadcast
  • Publicity and marketing costs
  • Color correction

The film will be completed by the end of August and will be submitted to international film festivals. The plan is to screen the film in various theatres in Argentina to create awareness about the film and to be ready to travel everywhere.

Your support will help us finish the film and allow us to spread the story of “Glorias del Tango” to the world. With such an incredibly important, personal, spiritual, and international story, we believe it is crucial that it reaches the largest audience possible. Please consider helping in any way you can. If you are able to contribute financially we have amazing incentives (listed on the right-hand side of this page). Please spread the word about our Kickstarter campaign to your friends and on Facebook. If you are a local Milonga, Workshop, Tour or Festival Organizer please consider spreading the message.  

WHAT HAPPENS IF WE DON'T REACH OUR GOAL?

If we don't reach our goal, we don't get anything. Donors pledge the amounts, but don't actually pay until the goal is reached and the funding deadline has passed. Please help us reach our goal! Everything helps.

HOW CAN YOU HELP ?

An EFFICIENT DISTRIBUTION of the film is only going to be possible with YOUR help (Tango fans, Instructors, Dancers, Movie Fans or Organizers and anyone who loves a good story). We want this to be your film just as much as it is ours. The more people who joins, the more chance we have of getting the story out. To help out please: "Like" us on Facebook, email this Kickstarter link and let your friends, supporter groups, and co-workers know about the film and this campaign.

It may seem strange that a film destined to be successful still needs funding, but this is the state of independent film-making in the world. Independent film-making does not follow a capitalist model, which judges success by the dollars a product makes in the market place. Our challenge is to raise funds for the film's finishing touches and to have a top notch Theatrical release in Argentina.  

BET on “GLORIAS DEL TANGO”

Most films that you might want to make a donation to are high risk propositions: will they even get finished and be any good, let alone be seen by more than the filmmaker’s friends and family? GLORIAS DEL TANGO is a low risk film, that has already received acclaim, such as the INCAA grant (Instituto Nacional de Cine y Artes Audiovisuales) http://www.incaa.gov.ar/castellano/index.php. However, we need your help to reach the larger world. Your donation will go to a project that already has been filmed. Our goal is to guarantee its distribution on television channels all over the globe. It will be translated into at least 4 languages, and will play in cinemas in many countries!  We hope that our film can make it to the renowned film festivals. See your name in lights!

HOW TO PLEDGE

Just click the green “Back This Project” button in the upper right-hand corner. You will be asked to input your pledge amount and select a reward. From there, you will go through the Amazon checkout process. You must finish the Amazon checkout process for your pledge to be recorded.

Yes and Yes! Just click on the Amazon Payment Button and you will see that you can pay with a credit card from any country! But you must finish the Amazon checkout process for your pledge to be recorded. If you have any problems, please contact us.

 Que es Kickstarter? (spanish)

Es un concepto nuevo que se gesto en USA desde el 2009 y donde han participado 4.6 millones de personas, se han financiado 46.000 proyectos con un movimiento de dinero por un valor de 746 millones de dollares.
Me gustaría poder explicarlo para que puedan todos saber de que se trata y al mismo tiempo lo puedan usar para sus propios proyectos.

Kickstarter quiere decir literalmente PATADA INICIAL, es una nueva manera de financiar proyectos creativos. Actúa como una plataforma, un recurso, en el cual el único responsable por el proyecto es el que lo lanza. Cualquiera puede lanzar un proyecto siempre y cuando cumpla con los requisitos que estipula dicha plataforma.

Los creadores del proyecto fijan un objetivo de financiación (monto de dinero) y plazo (30 o 60 días). Si la gente de todo el mundo, encuentra el proyecto interesante, puede prometer dinero para hacerlo realidad. La financiación en Kickstarter es TODO o NADA - los proyectos deben alcanzar sus metas de financiación para recibir dicho dinero prometido por cada uno que tuvo interés en el mismo. Todo o nada de financiación puede dar miedo, pero es increíblemente eficaz en la creación y el impulso de la gente en torno a una idea. Hasta la fecha, un impresionante 44% de los proyectos han alcanzado sus objetivos de financiación.

Los que APOYAN o PATROCINAN , están apoyando proyectos para ayudarles a cobrar vida, no para obtener ganancias financieras. En cambio, los CREADORES, del proyecto ofrecen recompensas para dar gracias a los patrocinadores por su apoyo. Los partidarios de un esfuerzo por hacer un libro o una película, por ejemplo, a menudo obtienen una copia de la obra terminada. Un apoyo o patrocinio más grande para un proyecto de película podría ser ir al estreno - o una proyección privada para vos y tus amigos. Un artista recaudó fondos para crear una instalación en la pared, y luego dio fragmentos de él a sus partidarios cuando terminó la exposición.

Mozart, Beethoven, Whitman, Twain y otros artistas financiaban obras de manera similar - no sólo con la ayuda de grandes clientes, pero pidiendo dinero a los clientes más pequeños, a menudo llamados suscriptores. A cambio de su apoyo, los suscriptores pueden haber recibido una copia anticipada o edición especial de la obra. Kickstarter es una extensión de este modelo, pero en la web.

Kickstarter está apoyando a aquellos que tienen un sueño de crear algo que ellos quieren ver que exista en el mundo. La gente se moviliza en torno a los proyectos de sus amigos, los aficionados apoyan a las personas que admiran, y otros simplemente vienen a Kickstarter a inspirarse en nuevas ideas. Algunos proyectos tardan más de lo previsto, pero los creadores que actúan transparentemente acerca de los problemas y demoras que puedan haber, suelen encontrar en las personas que los han apoyado ser comprensivos.

Kickstarter es una empresa con fines de lucro con sede en la ciudad de Nueva York Lower East Side. Si un proyecto está financiado con éxito, se aplica una tarifa de 5% de los fondos recaudados.



Risks and challenges

The stories of funding independent film are vast, and fortunately we've already navigated nearly all of them. With “Glorias del Tango”, backers don't need to fret about weather, casting, locations, insurance, and all the other details that can derail a film project, BECAUSE “ GLORIAS DEL TANGO” HAS ALREADY BEEN SHOT.
There are of course no distribution guarantees and it is unclear whether distribution companies will want to put “Glorias del Tango” out on the big screen. But we do know this: Festivals are taking notice. Our script was awarded with a Grant from the Argentine Government through INCAA, that financed almost 40% of the total budget, the rest was completed by private investors, friends and family.

As we described above, the group of Actors, Dancers and Musicians who committed in doing this film is one of a kind. This is one of the films biggest assets.
The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to increase the awareness of our project in the crowded marketplace, to expand our access and exposure and to open doors. With a successfully backed campaign, we know we can accomplish that.
At that point, of course, the film must -- and will -- speak for itself.
