BIMA hosts smARTfilms presentation of 'Buena Vista Social Club'
The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art’s smARTfilm series presents “Buena Vista Social Club,” Wim Wenders’ 1998 documentary that delves into the images, sounds and culture of Cuba through the adventures of musician Ry Cooder during his 1996 travels there, at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 20 in the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art auditorium.
Legendary soneros musicians, including 90-year-old singer/guitarist Compay Segundo and Omara Portuondo, “the Cuban Edith Piaf,” are filmed and recorded in their home country and abroad in scenes that capture the beauty, sorrow and tenderness of the music, musicians and their country of origin. A hosted discussion follows the film.
Tickets are $6 and $10.
Come for dinner before the show in the BIMA Bistro for a Cuban-themed meal. Make dinner reservations at 206-451-4011.
