Oscar-nominated documentary BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB tells the story of aging Cuban musicians whose talents had been virtually forgotten following Castro's takeover of Cuba. The musicians are brought out of retirement by Ry Cooder, resulting in triumphant performances of extraordinary music, and resurrecting the musicians' careers.

Join ECA’s pre-film Cabaret backstage! ALMA Y AZÚCAR brings an exquisite and passionate selection of Latin styles and flavors. From the bouncy feel of “Perfidia” and “Quizas,” to the passionate tango version of “Besame Mucho,” the sultry bossa nova “Waters of March” and the salsa sound of “Bemba Colorá” or “Oye Como Va,” these tunes have captured hearts and entertained internationally for decades. 

BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB:Director: Wim Wenders - Writers: Wim Wenders (by), Nick Gold (original concept) - Stars: Compay Segundo, Ibrahim Ferrer & Rubén González.
