Film Screening - Anacaona: The Buena Vista Sisters' Club
Directed by Manfred Schafer and Ingrid Kummels

This informative and entertaining documentary charts the extraordinary story of Anacaona, a glamorous all-girl orchestra that stormed to success in 1930s Cuba and became the toast of Old Havana. Founded by Cuchito Castro (and eventually comprised of her ten sisters), this internationally renowned group took their exotic "son cubano" rhythms across the world before sadly fading into obscurity after the Cuban Revolution.
