Buena Vista Social Club by Wim Wenders( Visual )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in Spanish and English and held by 1,829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En 1996, el compositor, productor y guitarrista Ry Cooder viajó hasta los Estudios Egrem, en La Habana, interesado en cierta música con ritmos provenientes de áfrica. Si bien su búsqueda resultó infructuosa, esto no le impidió conocer a un grupo de legendarios músicos cubanos, que habían pasado prácticamente al olvido, cuyas edades fluctuaban entre los 60 y 80 años. El resultado fue Buena Vista Social Club, un álbum ganador de un Grammy cuyo éxito fue aclamado internacionalmente. Filmado en 1998, este documental registra el regreso de Cooder a Cuba, ocasión en la que se reúne con el vocalista Ibrahim Ferrer y el resto de los músicos con la intención de grabar un nuevo álbum. El director de cine Wim Wenders, junto a un reducido grupo de filmación, observó a los músicos en el estudio y rastreó sus vidas en La Habana. Así se dio inicio a este documental, que registra el viaje de los ancianos desde su país natal hasta la ciudad de Amsterdam, donde ofrecieron dos conciertos, y que finaliza en Nueva York, con una presentación en el Carnegie Hall."--Wikipedia

This Cuban film details the unusual relationship between the flamboyant, educated Diego (Jorge Perugorría) and the young, homophobic, pro-Revolution David (Vladimir Cruz). Miserable at being dumped by his girlfriend, David at first spurns the attentions of Diego; however, at the prompting of his Communist roommate, Miguel (Francisco Gattorno), he cultivates an acquaintanceship with Diego in order to investigate his liberal leanings. Of course, Diego's cultured ways prove fascinating to the younger man and a true friendship grows. Add the slightly crazy neighbor Nancy (Mirta Ibarra), who frequently attempts suicide, as romantic fodder for David, and this playful drama becomes a heartwarming film
