Tinder Tango with Cecilia Robles
For Cecilia Robles, the short film Tinder Tango was a passion project.
Tinder Tango made its premiere earlier this month at the Dances with Films festival with in-person fanfare as it combines dancing and horror elements in the same film. It took online dating to an entirely different level.
The short film stars Cecilia Robles and Jordi Caballero, who co-wrote the script with Caballero. Robles directed the short.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the short film:
A dreamy Tinder match of two tango aficionados who meet for the first time, and it turns out to be a hell of a date.
