Picture yourself in an elegant reading room, sipping a glass of fine wine between bites of empanada as Brazilian jazz floats through the air…the scent of printed literature mingles with fresh flowers…a flickering screen transports you to Brownstone Brooklyn, and then a dance hall where an elegant couple dances the tango. The film ends, the music begins again, and the couple from the film are now in front of you, dancing their tango in the library. You’ve become part of the story, “An October Evening of Passion.”
