AFS Presents: Wim Wenders’ BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB
February 26, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - February 28, 2016 @ 4:00 pm
DIRECTED BY WIM WENDERS
Germany, USA, UK, France and Cuba, 1999, DCP, 105 min
In English and Spanish with English Subtitles
Nominated for Best Feature Documentary at the 2000 Academy Awards, BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB became an international sensation. Thinking he was simply accompanying his old friend Ry Cooder (who had written the music for PARIS, TEXAS) to bring together some traditional Cuban musicians to record an album, Wenders never expected he’d be documenting their path to becoming world famous – in just a few months! Wenders immerses himself in the world of Cuban music, first in Havana, then on a trip to Amsterdam and finally at New York’s Carnegie Hall.
