The evolution and dissolution of Cuba’s National Art Schools is the subject of this luminous and stirring documentary from Alysa Nahmias & Benjamin Murphy. The story traces the conceptualization and construction of a sprawling complex of buildings from the moment when they were imagined—during a golf game between Fidel Castro and Che Guevara—to recent efforts to rehabilitate the architecturally innovative buildings. “Lucidly filmed so as to strongly capture the rapturously creative and varied styles of the schools, the prolonged gestation period of which can modestly but plausibly be compared to that of Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, Unfinished Spaces is an excellent example of the specific used to illustrate a wider truth, in this case about unfulfilled dreams, both artistic and political. Cosponsored with LASP. Directed by Alysa Nahmias & Benjamin Murphy and starring Robert Gottardi, Ricardo Porro, and Vittorio Garratti.
