Movie night: Unfinished Spaces

USA 2011, 86 min., engl. subtitles
Program of Art x Cuba. Contemporary Perspectives since 1989 in cooperation with Kaleidoskop Filmforum Aachen e.V.

In 1961, shortly after the Revolution, Fidel Castro commissioned Cuban architect Ricardo Porro and the two Italian architects Vittorio Garatti and Roberto Gottardi to convert a former golf course into a national art academy. The school’s concept was as free and radical as the architecture, inspired by natural forms and built in an open idea, and has remained so to this day. However, when the Revolution finally became reality, the plans were stopped in the face of an uncertain and precarious political climate. In interviews with the still-living Porro, archival footage of Fidel Castro and private shots of former students, the film traces the construction and development of the Cuban art academy, which is still in use today although it has never been completed.
