BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB
1999, Lionsgate, 105 min, Germany, Dir: Wim Wenders

Nearly a decade ago, director Wim Wenders and American guitarist Ry Cooder assembled the legendary old-guard of Havana's musicians, some in their nineties, for a series of recording sessions and concerts that Wenders filmed for the documentary that has become legendary in its own right. Many of those musicians have now passed on, making this document of their ageless energy and timeless legacy all the more vital. Performances include: Ibrahim Ferrer ("the Cuban Nat King Cole"), Compay Segundo, Ruben Gonzalez, Eliades Ochoa and Omara Portuondo.
