Unfinished Spaces

Unfinished Spaces

In 1961 Fidel Castro and Che Guevara commissioned three young architects to create Cuba’s National Art Schools in Havana. As Revolutionary dreams became reality, construction was abruptly halted. Forty years later, with the unfinished schools in decay, Castro invites the exiled architects back to finish their unrealized dream. (2011, Dirs. A. Nahmias, B. Murray, 86 min.)

Post-screening Q&A with Alysa Nahmias.
