Buena Vista Social Club

The Left Bank Village - Borderlines Film Buena Vista Social Club Adios

The musicians of the Buena Vista Social Club exposed the world to Cuba’s vibrant culture. Reunited by band leader Ry Cooder, their surge to international fame with their landmark 1997 album was captured in Wim Wenders’ critically acclaimed, Oscar-nominated documentary. Now, British filmmaker Lucy Walker (Waste Land) has made an exemplary sequel and companion piece which not only chronicles the late-life careers of the Buena Vista stars (many of whom have since died) but also tells their fascinating, often painful back stories, locating them and their music more deeply within Cuba’s rich social and historical contexts.
