Buena Vista Social Club Documentary (G) 105 minutes

BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB - DOCUMENTARY--(G)--A film by Wim Wenders that travels from the streets of Havana to the stage of Carnegie Hall. This revelatory documentary captures a forgotten generation of Cuba’s brightest musical talents as they enjoy an unexpected encounter with world fame. After winning a Grammy for an album recorded with American guitarist and roots-music champion Ry Cooder, the ensembles members were filmed in a series of illuminating interviews and live performances. The result is one of the most beloved documentaries of the 1990’s, and an infectious ode to a neglected corner of Cuba’s prerevolutionary heritage.
