GLAFF 2022 Opening Night Gala: Omara

6:30pm Doors | 8pm Show

Join GLAFF for the Opening Night Gala of the 2022 edition. We are proud to present the feature film OMARA (2022) directed by Hugo Pérez:

If you’ve listened to the Buena Vista Social Club, then you’ve heard the unforgettable voice of Omara Portuondo. At 90, Cuba’s legendary diva has been a driving force in Afro-Cuban music for over half a century. In this first-of-its-kind look at the life of one of the nation’s biggest stars and last grand dames, director Hugo Pérez brings audiences along on an intimate journey into the heart of Cuba’s “Bride of Feeling”, following Omara as she celebrates and shares the music of her beloved island with the world.
