In collaboration with the Camden International Film Festival, the Farnsworth Art Museum co-presents the documentary film Unfinished Spaces. The film tells the story of three young, visionary architects who were commissioned by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara to create Cuba's National Art Schools in 1961. Dancers, musicians and artists from all over the country reveled in the beauty of the schools, but as the dream of the Revolution gave way to reality, construction was abruptly halted. Forty years later the schools are in use, but remain unfinished and decaying. Castro has invited the exiled architects back to finish their unrealized dream. Director of Education, Roger Dell, will lead a post-film conversation with directors Alysa Nahmias and Ben Murray.
