‘UNFINISHED SPACES’ Screening in Arizona as Part of Sundance Institute’s FILM FORWARD

The LPB funded film UNFINISHED SPACES will be screening in Arizona – the first of nine stops of the Sundance Institute’s FILM FORWAD 2012UNFINISHED SPACES, a visually striking documentary feature by Alysa Nahmias and Benjamin Murray that moves beyond the usual politically charged arguments surrounding Cuba to chart the bittersweet experiences of the three architects – Ricardo Porro, Vittorio Garratti and Roberto Gottardi – and the fragile legacy of their creations. UNFINISHED SPACES also includes intimate, never-before-seen footage of Fidel Castro, showing his devotion to creating a worldwide showcase for art. The screening will take place on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at the Tucson Museum of Art. All films and events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted.

FILM FORWARD promotes cultural dialogue through independent documentary and narrative film, using film’s unique ability to tell stories that explore universal themes to ignite meaningful conversations. A total of 10 films and filmmakers from the U.S. and abroad were selected by Sundance Institute and the partners to participate in this program, traveling to four domestic and five international locations. Filmmakers participate in screenings, extended Q&As, workshops, and master classes at Universities, film and cultural centers, museums, libraries and other community, educational, and cultural venues cultivating engaged dialogue, fostering appreciation of other viewpoints, and developing new audiences for independent film. FILM FORWARD 2012 will travel to nine locations between February and September of 2012.
