Buena Vista Social Club

Buena Vista Social Club

Within this fascinating Oscar-nominated documentary, American guitarist Ry Cooder brings a group of legendary Cuban folk musicians (some in their 90s) to capture a Grammy-winning CD in their native city of Havana. The end result is a set of concert footage from the band's gigs with director Wim Wenders shooting not just the music -- but in addition the artists' life stories.
