Award-winning 1-hour Channel 4 documentary

Californian piano tuner Ben Treuhaft set out for Cuba with 25 pianos and a brigade of piano tuners, defying the US blockade of the island, to help address the shortage of pianos in the country, which is famed for its music. Tuning with the Enemy is the story of that trip. It is a captivating, humorous and moving film with great views from Cuba and Cuban musicians. The documentary is made by Tricia O'Leary and Helen Gallacher and features The Buena Vista Social Club (Ruben Gonzales, Ibrahim Ferrer Eliades Ochoa et al) performing throughout the film.

We will be screening Tuning with the Enemy as part of a campaign to send a piano to the Amadeo Roldan music school in Havana. www.gofundme.com/pianotocuba
