Convergent Media, Social Construct’s joint venture with leading entertainment law firm SmithDehn, is producing BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB – ADIÓS, a feature documentary film directed by two-time Academy Award nominee Lucy Walker, Executive Produced by Wim Wenders, and distributed in the U.S. by Broad Green Pictures. Sixteen years after the previous Academy Award nominated film (directed by Wenders), this latest project is following the five surviving original members of the world-changing Cuban band, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, during their final international tour, culminating in a massive celebration in Havana. The film will include mesmerizing concert footage and poignant reflections on the astounding success of the band and the loss of several of its members. It also will be set in the context of the historic changes in the relationship between Cuba and the United States, undoubtedly influenced by the vibrant music and culture of Cuba epitomized and brought to the world stage by this band.
