Feature Films:

Bakosó: AfroBeats de Cuba
Dir. Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi
(Cuba / United States, 50 min., 2019, Spanish w/ English subtitles, Documentary)
What does “Está Rico ” by Marc Anthony, Will Smith & Bad Bunny have in common with “Made For Now” by Janet Jackson and Daddy Yankee? They both high-jacked AfroBeats and did not give the genre’s origin props. Bakosó is a film that does the opposite, following DJ Jigüe to his hometown of Santiago de Cuba to find inspiration from the new sounds. He finds Afrobeats has helped create a new genre called Bakosó, which itself is beautiful proof that the exchange between Cuba and Africa did not end with the Transatlantic slave trade. Through stunning visuals and a score created by the founders of the genre, the film shows the technology, culture and landscape that shape this African-Caribbean fusion.

Eliades Ochoa: De Cuba y para el mundo
Dir. Cynthia Biestek
(Mexico / Cuba / France / United States, 100 min., 2019, English; Spanish w/ English subtitles, Music Documentary)
He became known in the world over in the late 90s as an original member of legendary Cuban band Buena Vista Social Club, but Eliades Ochoa’s passion for his country’s musical heritage led him to pursue a life dedicated to music much earlier than that: he began by playing his guitar in the streets of Eastern Cuba, then joined a slew of folk groups, until finally, the success of Buena Vista Social Club came along.

Work In Progress Sneak Preview: Fandango at the Wall 
Dir. Varda Bar-Kar
(United States / Mexico, 93 min., 2020, English; Spanish w/ English subtitles, Music documentary)
Fandango at the Wall follows Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra founder/conductor Arturo O’Farrill to the remotest regions of Veracruz, Mexico, where he meets and jams with the masters of son jarocho. Son jarocho is 300-year-old folk music rooted in the land that combines African, Indigenous and Spanish traditions. After Arturo’s inspiring journey to a place where time seems to stands still, he and his orchestra join the masters of son jarocho at the border between the United States and Mexico for a son jarocho music and dance festival called Fandango Fronterizo (founded by Jorge Francisco Castillo). The festival takes place simultaneously on the Mexico-United States border, transforming this object that divides to one that unites. Ritmo Latinx Films Showcase.
