Translation: now! ICAIC documentary with the voice of Lena Horne made by Santiago Alvarez Rostgaard/65

Notes:
Some folks think that Lena Horne's signature song is "Stormy Weather" but her real signature is "NOW". For her politics, Lena Horne was black(white)listed; she was dedicated to justice, and "NOW" is probably the song she cared for most. The great filmmaker, Cuba's Santiago Alvarez, captured the essence of Lena Horne's "NOW" in his 1964 short documentary about the Civil Rights struggle in this country.
