Artist Maria Bacardi presents this "Buena Vista Social Club" for foodies!  In this documentary, filmmaker Asori Soto went to his native country for a personal journey to the rescue of the traditional flavors of his youth, at a time when ingredients and cooking styles were swept away by the winds of change that followed Castro's death in 2016.  Soto visits nine locations across Cuba, some very far and only reachable on horseback or boat.  The result is a fascinating (and mouth-watering) reflection on  how the rich contemporary cuisine of the country was influenced by different parts of the Caribbean, and how the population dealt in the 90's with food shortages after the collapse of the Soviet Union.
