The film was chosen because it’s about architecture in Havana. The co-founders of The Aviary, Stella and Andrea both took the summer study abroad trip to Havana in 2004 at the end of their first year of architecture school. This is the trip when they became close friends and Andrea met her future husband. She has subsequently spent much time there over the last 13 years.
The riveting story of Cuba's ambitious National Art School, designed by three young architects in the wake of Castro's Revolution, then nearly forgotten, and ultimately rediscovered as a visionary architectural masterpiece.
Directed by award-winning filmmakers Alysa Nahmias and Benjamin Murray.
Winner of the 2012 Film Independent Spirit Award, the 2014 Society of Architectural Historians Best Film Award, and numerous film festival prizes.
