smARTfilms Series: Buena Vista Social Club
7:00 – 9:00 pm @ Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (550 Winslow Way East)
BIMA’s smARTfilms series fosters community conversation through the merger of visual art, film and narrative. Wim Wenders’ documentary begs that we delve deeper into the images, sounds and culture of Cuba through the adventures of musician Ry Cooder during his 1996 travels there. 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, and tenderness of the music, musicians and their country of origin. A hosted discussion will follow the film. Admission: $10 adults; $6 students

In May of 1954, Grant Winther was a Lieutenant in the Navy, stationed on a small aircraft carrier, delivering planes and helicopters to Indochina for the French to use in the battle of Dien Bien Phu. The delivery point was Saigon. That was 60 years ago. During that time a generation was decimated by constant wars—an estimated 5 million Vietnamese killed. So what is Vietnam like today?
