In 1961, Fidel Castro commissioned Ricardo Porro, Roberto Gottardi and Vittorio Garatti to design 'the most beautiful of art schools in the world'. They succeeded beyond his wildest dreams with the National Art Schools built in the grounds of a lavish golf course previously frequented by the rich and privileged. The spectacular, futuristic school became a centre of artistic excellence until 1965 when the revolution changed, the construction was halted and the trio went into exile. Unfinished Spaces reunites the three architects 40 years later for emotional recollections of what happened and beautiful images of decaying buildings that deserve to be preserved. A masterful mixture of archive history, politics and hope. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Stranger than Fiction.
