Bola de Nieve

We will screen, "Bola de Nieve," a 2003 documentary film about renowned Cuban musician, Bola de Nieve (Ignacio Villa) directed by José Sánchez-Montes. Bola de Nieve's spare use of the piano and magnetic voice attracted admirers such as Edith Piaf, Andres Segovia, Pablo Neruda, and Josephine Baker. Through this film we come to know this tormented soul who would repeat time and time again that he was a "sad man who sings joyfully." In Spanish with English subtitles. Duration 73 minutes. 8:00pm.
