Jan. 7: ‘Santiago Is Santiago’ screens at the Bay Model Visitor Center


Naturally, the stellar music drove the narrative of the award-winning documentary Buena Vista Social Club. But just as important and eye-opening were the many scenes of street life in and around Havana—the cars, dancing, street peddlers, artists and overall culture of the country that’s grown independently for 50 years. Filmmaker Warren Haack became entranced by this culture, and has released a film capturing life in the clubs, bars and streets of Cuba. ‘Santiago Is Santiago’ explores this Afro-Cuban intermingling; it screens on Tuesday, Jan. 7, at the Bay Model Visitor Center. 2100 Bridgeway, Sausalito. 6pm. Free. 415.332.3871.
