Black Tears

Lagrimas negras

Directed by Sonia Herman Dolz
Netherlands, Cuba, 1997


Documentary portrait of the Cuban band ‘La Vieja Trova Santiaguera’. The five members, their average age 84, combine wisdom and passion in their love songs. With a double bass, two guitars, samba balls and claves, the aged troubadours give very swinging performances.
