Buena Vista Social Club

1h 41m Documentary, Music 1999

AroView: A documentary music classic focused on a handful of sprightly elderly Cuban musicians who, together with the help of iconic guitarist Ry Cooder, produced the biggest selling World-Music album ever with their soulful, melodic jazz sound.

Documenting the making of their second album, dir. Wim Wenders interviewed the various members, most of them past retirement age (with one energetic guitarist in his 90s), about finding success at last, and providing a window into the dilapidated yet romantic world of contemporary Cuba.
