Buena Vista Social Club Sequel: Pulled Out of Sundance Last Moment

The Untitled Buena Vista Social Club documentary will not premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Fest.

Broad Green, the film’s distributor, attributed the last minute decision to the need to make more post-production tweaks. It was originally slated to have its first public screenings on Friday.

“We at Broad Green are disappointed that we will not be able to premiere this compelling documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival,” a spokesperson for Broad Green said. “The film’s post production process has taken longer than expected and thus the decision was made to wait to introduce the film to audiences until it can be presented in its best possible iteration.”

A sequel to 1999’s “The Buena Vista Social Club,” it examines Cuba’s musical scene.
Lucy Walker (“The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom”) directs the new film’ the first one was helmed by Wim Wenders.
