La Salsa Cubana – DVD Release Party- May 30 – Mission Cultural Center


La Salsa Cubana was an audience favorite at the 2011 Cine+Mas SF Latino Film Festival.  We encourage you to come out for the DVD Release party taking place at the Mission Cultural Center on Thursday May 30 at 7:30 PM.

LaSalsaCubanaDVDDirector Eric Joseph Johnson will be in attendance. The celebration will include music, dancing, and performances- in short, you’ll get a taste of casino live!

La Salsa Cubana is the first film to explore Cuban salsa, known as casino, since it appeared in Havana social clubs in the 1950s. With a soundtrack that features Cuba’s all-time greatest musical legends, it follows a dance group from the Guanabacoa neighborhood as they strive against all odds to win the national dance competition.

Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey – in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero – brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love.
