Screening of Alysa Nahmias’ “Unfinished Spaces”

The film Unfinished Spaces will be screened at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art on Wednesday, February 8, 2012, at 7:00pm. The screening will be followed by a discussion with guest filmmaker Alysa Nahmias. This event will take place in the Ford Room of the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, located at 1430 Johnson Lane (University of Oregon) in Eugene, Oregon.

Unfinished Spaces (2011, 86 min.) follows three architects as they return to Cuba after forty years in exile to finish what was considered the world’s most spectacular and futuristic art school, which the country’s revolution had inspired and then abandoned. Todd McCarthy for the Hollywood Reporter describes Unfinished Spaces as “an apt and unstressed metaphor for the history of the Cuban revolution itself. . . lucidly filmed and absorbing.” [For a review of the film, see previous post “Unfinished Spaces” Portrays Vindicated Architects of Cuba’s Forgotten Art Schools.]
