LOS ANGELES, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Vision Films announces additional markets for the continuing theatrical release of the award-winning Tango Shalom. The strong and positive message of inclusion and family is resonating with audiences and critics across the country. The multi-award-winning, Joel Zwick produced dance comedy, is adding screens across Southern California, including Palm Springs, in New York, and opening anew in South Florida and Phoenix, AZ.
Tango Shalom is directed by Gabriel Bologna, son of Renée Taylor and the late Joseph Bologna. The elder Bologna also co-wrote and produced the film with brothers Jos and Claudio Laniado of Convivencia Forever Films. Co-produced by Joel Zwick (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Robert Meyer Burnett (Agent Cody Banks franchise), Zizi Bologna, and celebrity choreographer Jordi Caballero.
Starring Lainie Kazan, Renée Taylor, Karina Smirnoff, Joseph Bologna, Jos and Claudio Laniado, Bern Cohen and Judi Beecher.
"This is the feel-good film we all need to experience right now," says Lise Romanoff, Managing Director and CEO of Vision Films. "With amazing tango dance sequences, a fantastic musical score, and a message of inclusion, family, and love, Tango Shalom is a must-see."
"Tango Shalom is building momentum through a creative and very hands-on approach to marketing," says Kristen Bedno, VP of Distribution and Marketing at Vision Films. "From street teams in Times Square to direct partnerships with synagogues and organizations, and actively-supportive cast and filmmakers making in-person appearances across the country, this festival darling is proving that the independent film spirit is alive and well."
This fable explores how an Orthodox Rabbi solicits input from various religious leaders and friends to enter a tango competition while remaining true to his religious code.
