Documentary Feature | Line Producer | 2004
Once a week, a diner in a working-class town is converted into a makeshift nightclub. Here, Cuban immigrants from New York and New Jersey gather to dance the rumba until the wee hours. In addition to explaining the rumba's roots in Cuban culture, this documentary explores the daily lives of these recreational dancers, a group that includes a cook, a mechanic and other hardworking laborers. But the film's main focus is Sundays, when the evening is devoted to the rumba.
