Modern Languages & Linguistics Film #3: Buena Vista Social Club (Cuba & USA, Wim Wenders, 1999)

In this celebrated film, German director Wim Wenders and American slide guitarist Ry Cooder set out to explore the world of pre-Castro music in Cuba. In reuniting and recording some of Cuban music’s forgotten giants, the film reveals the gentle formality, exuberant passion, and style-defining rhythms of Cuba’s deep Afro Caribbean roots. (In Spanish with English sub-titles)
