Amor Crónico follows Grammy nominated, Cuban-born CuCu Diamantes as she embarks on a whirlwind tour of her home country. Interweaving glamorous live performances with a fictional romance, the film pays tribute to the history of cinema in surreal fashion. Backed by a high energy Latin soundtrack, Cucu's journey is a visual love poem to the sites, sounds, and people of Cuba.
Cuban born with French, Spanish, African and Chinese heritage, CuCu Diamantes came to New York with music in mind. Shortly after landing on her new “island”, CuCu teamed with producer and musician Andres Levin that led to the development and inception of the band “Yerba Buena”. Interview Magazine called Yerba Buena “the future sound of Afro-Latin Urban America” and New York Times hailed the group as “a musicologist’s dream”. CuCu went on to garner a GRAMMY nomination for her solo album “CUCULAND” and
perform by request alongside artists ranging from The Dave Matthews Band to Juanes, and Ray Charles to Celia Cruz (in her last ever-New York concert).
Born in Venezuela and residing in NYC for the last 24 years, Andres Levin studied atBerklee (Boston) and The Julliard School (NYC). Leader of the band Yerba Buena, Andres is a 10 time GRAMMY® Nominee and received his first GRAMMY in 2009 for IN THE HEIGHTS. His production and song writing credits include songs for David Byrne, Caetano Veloso, Natalie Merchant, CuCu Diamantes, Miguel Bose, Michael Stipe, Orishas, Femi Kuti, Paulina Rubio and Macy Gray. His film composer credits include: El Cantante and Borderland; songs featured in TV shows include: Entourage, Heroes, CSI & ER.
Andres started his social philanthropic organization Music Has No Enemies to help non profits around the world.

From that moment, he has gone on to act in nearly 50 films, including Steven Soderbergh’s “Che”. Having previously co-directed one fiction feature film, “Amor Cronico” is his solo directorial debut.
