Sir Reel, Evil Twin team for Cuba fest

Cadieux to helm for music confab

Two L.A.-based companies, Sir Reel Films and Evil Twin Prods., are teaming up to document this month’s Music Bridges Around the World cultural exchange in Cuba.

Commercial and docu helmer Marc Cadieux will direct, and Academy Award-winning cinematographer Haskell Wexler will shoot the proceedings.

Producing are Sir Reel’s Cynthia Semon, Evil Twin’s J.C. Duran and David Page, and Music Bridges’ Alan Roy Scott.

The unprecedented event, taking place March 21-29, sees U.S. and other recording artists traveling to Cuba for a week of collaborative songwriting with local artists, and a free concert in Havana on March 28.

Participants include Burt Bacharach, Peter Buck, Stewart Copeland, Mick Fleetwood, Indigo Girls, Lisa Loeb, Stephen Stills and Don Was; pending confirmation are Bonnie Raitt and Peter Gabriel.

Docu is budgeted at $350,000, although all equipment is being donated and the crew is donating its time, said Evil Twin’s Page.

No distribution is in place, but Page said the producers would aim for a theatrical release.

Announcement comes in the wake of strong buzz over another Cuba-based music docu, Wim Wenders’ “Buena Vista Social Club,” which Artisan plans to release theatrically in June.
