Wenders longtime friend Ry Cooder often enthused to Wenders about his trip to Cuba and the album "Buena Vista Social Club" he had recorded there with some old Cuban musicians, some of whom had fallen into oblivion. The next time Cooder travelled to Cuba, Wenders accompanied him with a small film crew, observed the musicians in the studio and traced their lives in Havana and also shot the only concerts given by the "Buena Vista Social Club" in Amsterdam and in, their triumphal success in the legendary Carnegie Hall.

The documentary, a purely German production has become the most successful German movie world wide in 1999. Buena Vista Social Club was sold to more than 50 territories in the world. In the UK Buena Vista Social Club has now become the most successful documentary of all time.
