Orquesta Tipica is a feature-length documentary chronicling the rise of Argentina’s newest and most popular tango orchestra: Orquesta Tipica Fernandez Fierro. The movie follows the band’s 12 members as they tour Argentina, Uruguay, Germany, Austria, Holland, Switzerland, and Italy. It has screen in over twenty-one film festivals in the United States, Asia, Europe and Latin America, where it has won numerous awards. Twelve guys looking like punk rockers pushing a piano down the street. Their sound is elaborate but raw. Their music is politically committed while historically linked to counterculture; still, it is part of a genre more than a hundred years old. This is their story.
