Wim Wenders (Paris, Texas, Wings of Desire) explores Cuba's musical past in this critically acclaimed documentary.
Accompanying Ry Cooder, producer of the 1997 Grammy award-winning album Buena Vista Social Club, back to Cuba, Wim Wendera encounters Ibrahim Ferrer, Company Segundo, Ruben Gonzalez, Omara Portuondo and other members of the band. Together, these veteran musicians reminisce about the glory of their musical past where, at the height of their success in the 1930s and 40s, they were acclaimed as the greatest musicians in Cuba.
The film observes their rehearsals with Ry Cooder in a studio, leading up to their first performance in America, at New York legendary Carnegie Hall.
A remarkable record of an immensely gifted group of musicians, Buena Vista Social Club is a journey as emotional and uplifting as the music itself.
