TIME
7:00pm - 9:00pm

Acclaimed as one of the best motion pictures ever made about music, the vibrant 'Calle 54' (2000) offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the lives of some of the greatest Latin Jazz artists of our time. From the director of Academy Award-winning Belle Epoch (Best Foreign Language Film, 1993) comes this documentary featuring barefoot Brazilian pianist Eliane Elias, Argentinean tenor sax great Gato Barbieri, Paquito D'Rivera, Chucho Vald├ęs, Cachao, and many more - not to mention the last on-screen appearances by the late composer-arranger Chico O'Farrill and the legendary timbales master and "godfather of Latin music" Tito Puente (pictured).

MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, and WWOZ FM. Free admission and refreshments. Contact info@press-street.com.
