Buena Vista Adios (2017, Cuba-US, Dir. Lucy Walker)
With: Omara Portuondo, Jesus "Aguaje" Ramos, Barbarito Torres, Manuel "Guajiro" Mirabal
Nearly two decades ago Cuban music set the world on fire. Now we will hear their stories, their amazing music, their unforgettable journey in Lucy Walker's documentary Buena Vista Adios, a fond farewell chronicling the late-life careers of the Buena Vista Social Club musicians, many of whom have since passed away. Set against the backdrop of Cuba's captivating musical history, we hear the band's story as they reflect on their remarkable careers and the extraordinary circumstances that brought them together. Sit back and enjoy their vibrant personalities and the wonderful music.
