Wednesday Films: Buena Vista Social Club

Each Wednesday night we screen a music film, playing the audio through our very nice sound system. Diner by the Izakaya serves up hot ramen, and we’ve got high quality beers from the likes of Hudson Valley Brewing and Evil Twin at the bar. A little about the week’s film:

In April 1998, a group of traditional Cuban son musicians who had never played outside their Havana studio performed in Amsterdam, and three months later at Carnegie Hall. Wim Wenders, the internationally applauded German filmmaker, decided to document these musicians, who had gone from being virtually forgotten to world famous. The result was Buena Vista Social Club, a winning celebration of ageless gusto, indomitable spirit and the joy of making music.
