The 100 Years Show (2015) is a charming, sweet, and inspiring documentary short about Cuban-American artist Carmen Herrera. Her work is extraordinary.

The 100 Years Show (2015):
- Directed by: Alison Klayman
- Starring: Carmen Herrera
- Runtime: 30 minutes
- Release Date: January 2017
The film is currently streaming on Netflix (USA).
