Enjoy Carlos Machado Quintela's debut feature film, The Swimming Pool (La Piscina) and Carlos Lechuga's short film The Swimmers (Los Bañistas), presented in conjunction with On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection. Jaie Laplante, Miami Film Festival's Executive Director & Director of Programming, will introduce the films.
The film follows the day of four differently-abled teenagers at a Havana swimming pool, where the boundaries of the swimming pool wash away into the endless horizon. The aimless day stretches on forever, and unspoken tension builds in the restless adolescents.
Free with museum admission.
