Buena Vista Social Club
(Buena Vista Social Club), (Havana rhapsody), (Ry Cooder & the Buena Vista Social Club)
One of the most critically acclaimed and adored music documentaries of the past twenty years, Buena Vista Social Club is a love letter to Cuba, its music, its people, and its soul. A group of elderly, still-charismatic Cuban musicians, veterans and stars of the son scene, unite under the production of Grammy-winner Ry Cooder to record as The Buena Vista Social Club. Wenders captures their rehearsals, preparations, and performances, and also heads off-stage to showcase their lives and personalities as they survive and thrive amidst the sunlit, sultry charms of Havana. Few films are as infused with the joy and sensuality of life.
