| "Si Sos Brujo" is a triumph of an idea over all obstacles
This is a moving documentary following the quest of Ignacio, a young Argentine musician who races to find legendary maestros from tango's golden age (now men in their eighties) in order to save the almost lost oral transmission of style before the secrets of the real tango are gone forever.

Si Sos Brujo follows this dream to create a tango orchestra school, and the relationship between its founder, the young musicians participating in the first group of students, and the 87 years old maestro he calls out of retirement to conduct it: the mythic violinist, composer, and bandoneon player Emilio Balcarce.

Caroline Neal first feature-length film shows a promising career as filmmaker. The story follows the illusions of these musicians with a simple, yet truthful recording. You see the cameras, the artifacts, the production. Even then, the movie shows that no matter what lack of resources people encounter, their creativity is stimulate to achieve even the most difficult endeavors.
