The Film Society of Minneapolis-St. Paul says
Join us for the final Cine Global screening of 2015 with Wim Wenders' Buena Vista Social Club, and celebrate one year since the US and Cuba announced restored diplomatic relations.

Cheered as "incandescent" by the New York Times, Wenders' 2000 Academy Award-nominated Cuban music documentary tracks the old heroes of the traditional Cuban Son music on their path from being completely forgotten to becoming world famous—within the period of just a few months. Wenders observed and accompanied the musicians—first at home in Havana; then, weeks later, in April 1998, on their trip to Amsterdam for the first public performance of the band (who had never played together outside a studio); then, still later, in July 1998, to their triumphal concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall.

The extraordinary documentary will also kick off Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road, a retrospective showing January 15-24, 2016.
