Global Lounge Presents the Fifth Annual 2019 World Village Film Night

We are pleased to screen “Ruben Blades is Not My Name” followed by a Salsa & Bachata Social Dance.
Latin American icon Ruben Blades was at the center of the New York Salsa revolution in the 1970’s.  His socially charged lyrics and explosive rhythms brought Salsa music to an international audience.
 Blades has won 17 Grammys, acted in Hollywood, earned a law degree from Harvard and even run for President of his native Panama. He lives in NY, where he granted us exclusive access to his life at home and on tour.
Critically acclaimed director Abner Benaim takes us on a journey through Ruben’s 50 year career, revealing that Ruben might still have both musical and political ambitions.
This is a film about a living legend and his struggle to come to terms with his legacy.
