The Buena Vista Social Club and digital-to-film technology

Does anyone have any info on this film to share? The end credits only 
mention Encore Video and "Shot with Sony Digibeta and Sony Handycam"; no lab 
is credited.

The look is very desaturated (at times pastel) with the blacks crushed and 
contrasty. Perhaps an intentional look to hide the inherent flaws of digital 
video? Whatever the reason it does result in some beautiful and unique 
looking sequences.

I'm also interested in what model cameras were used any how much of the look 
was the result of lab timing vs. video tape-to-tape mastering.
