"Tango and Sex" is the title of a documentary by Latin dancer Junior Cervila. It was screened this past weekend in New York City.

The film's statement:

"Tango and sex" is a documentary by Junior Cervila that explores the sub-text of Tango, and every aspect is colored by sexuality. Tango is not just a dance it is an historical tradition, a social contract between two people, a philosophy. Because sexual expressiveness was forbidden, the early years of Tango bore this stigma. Tango is a social contract with strict rules defined by the very nature of "leading" and "following". These rules provide perspective for understanding both relationship between the sexes and how the individual relates to their own sexuality. How one perceives these roles ranges from sexual repression to total release or sexual freedom. As a philosophy the documentary explores the dance as a sensual metaphor for life...with trust and true intimacy as its highest level.
