Niña Del Tango

In 2012, Jason directed his first post-collegiate project: the high budget short film titled “Niña Del Tango.” Following premiers in Los Angeles and New York City, the film found success in the festival circuit, which included screenings at two Oscar-qualifying festivals and The Consulate General of Argentina in New York. He subsequently received $20,000 in private funding for feature development based on the short film, including a paid trip to Buenos Aires for research and scouting.

When a gallery painting catches the eye of a little girl, the curator tells her the story of its origin. Set in 1940s Argentina, the legend involves a painter, his muse, and the Tango—a dance that brought them together and threatened to tear them apart. A rousing melodrama of love and dance, “Niña Del Tango” is brought to vivid life through the talents of tango superstars and award-winning filmmakers.
