Sequel Brings ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ Home
They’re making a comeback. The 1999 film about a group of Cuban musicians captured the world’s imagination — and an Oscar nomination for best documentary. The follow-up, Buena Vista Social Club — Adios, will be helmed by Lucy Walker rather than original director Wim Wenders and comes after the release of the group’s recent album, Lost and Found. Filming begins this summer, looking back at the musicians’ professional lives over the past 16 years while highlighting their homecoming concert tour in Havana.
