'UNFINISHED SPACES' Screening at DocuWeeks - Tickets Now Available!

UNFINISHED SPACES, A TRANSCENDENT TALE OF VISIONARY ARCHITECTURE IN POST-REVOLUTIONARY CUBA, SCREENS AT DOCUWEEKS™ THIS AUGUST TO QUALIFY FOR OSCAR® CONSIDERATION

 

Following a critically acclaimed world premiere at the LA Film Festival,UNFINISHED SPACES, directed and produced by Alysa Nahmias and Benjamin Murray, will screen at the prestigious DocuWeeks™ at IFC Center in New York City (Aug. 12 – 18), and Laemmle’s Sunset 5 in Los Angeles (Aug. 19 – 25), making it Academy Award® eligible.

 Born of utopian dreams following the revolution, Cuba’s National Art Schools represent an epic architectural achievement that nearly vanished within the country’s tumultuous past. The fate of the five schools – one each for modern dance, the plastic arts, the dramatic arts, music and ballet, all built on a former golf course – came to mirror the complex history of Cuba itself, as well as the individual stories of the three idealistic young architects who designed them.

 Ajna Films and The Room present UNFINISHED 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. For more information about UNFINISHED SPACES, please visit the filmmaker’s website at HERE.
