‘Habaneros’ Opening Doc Fortnight 2018: MoMA’s International Festival of Nonfiction Film and Media

15th February 2018

Julien Temple’s documentary ‘Habaneros‘ music supervised by Emily Appleton-Holley and Ciara Elwis will open Doc Fortnight 2018: MoMA’s International Festival of Nonfiction Film and Media.

“Acclaimed filmmaker Julien Temple celebrates the rich history of Cuba and its people in this homage to Havana. Weaving together archival footage, animations, movie excerpts, and interviews, and featuring a vibrant soundtrack of salsa, jazz, rumba, mambo, and hip hop, the film presents key moments in the city’s recent history—from the abolition of slavery at the end of the 19th century to the revolution of Fidel Castro—up to the current moment, with Havana on the brink of an exciting new global presence.”

This is the US premiere for the documentary, which features an original commissioned piece by Air-Edel’s Michael Csányi-Wills titled ‘A Love Song to Havana’. Nick Taylor and Tom Bullen were music editors.
