Ontario Premiere

This is her definitive portrait: passionate, personal, immersive. From Cuba to Japan, the Grammy-winning star singer of Buena Vista Social Club sets out to tell her story. Filled with her beloved hits and new compositions as well, the film pulls back the curtain on Omara’s previously private life. Exploring the Cuban Revolution, her meteoric rise to fame, and life as a single mother in Communist Cuba, this film serves both as a history of the Latin music revival and a testament to this amazing woman's resiliency and talent.

In Spanish and English with English subtitles.

Director Hugo Perez will be in attendance for a live post-screening Q&A.
