Summary
Cuba has a highly educated, extremely musical population, yet due to the American embargo, hundreds of trained pianists must struggle with barely working instruments. Not only are Cuban pianos aged and termite infested, they also lack strings, felts and hammers because economic sanctions prohibit Cuban tuners from ordering parts made in the U.S. Moved by this predicament, U.S. citizen Benjamin Treuhaft started Send a Piana to Havana, an organization whose primary purpose is that of collecting used pianos and sending them, along with trained piano tuners, to Cuba. For two weeks each year, these tuners form a brigade and invade Cuba on a mission of musical mercy. Transcending borders and politics, this delightful film gives an intimate view of Cuban daily life where humor helps its hard-pressed musicians overcome obstacles. English and Spanish, with subtitles
