PIFF: Unfinished Spaces


The Portland International Film Festival started this weekend and it goes through Feb. 25th. We started it off yesterday by seeing Unfinished Spaces, a documentary about the design, construction, abandonment and attempted restoration of the National Arts School in Cuba. I've been fascinated by this story since John Loomis, author of Revolution of Forms: Cuba's Forgotten Art Schools, came to give a lecture on them while I was a student at Ohio State.  I was so excited to see this movie was made and would be playing Portland! I am hoping they add more dates around the country soon.  It was fantastic to hear the architects involved talk about what must have been, and continues to be, an unimaginably exciting, heartbreaking, and tumultuous experience. Ricardo Porro in particular is such an entertaining character. If you get a chance to see this movie in a theater I highly recommend it!

Next up (unless I find a few more must see films this week, which is likely) is A Cat in Paris. An animated "love letter to classic noir films" with Paris as a "moody cityscape" and a "retro jazz" soundtrack, and of course, starring a cat? No way are we missing that one.
