Nino Acosta, has traveled over the world filming the style called Bachata to turn it into a film.
In September 2012 the film "The Bachata Chronicles" will be released. Nino Acosta — native to the Dominican Republic— and the film's creator, talks about the various topics that will be explored in this film: "I'm talking about the dancers, history itself, the history of dance, the history of several people, who influenced the most in this dance and who created the movement."
What Acosta is really trying to convey in this film is: "When you are in your most difficult time on your life there's always a way to use that difficult moments to create something great."
Those who want to catch the film infused with the passion of dance can expect it at the Calgary Film Festival in the fall.
