las doce sillas

 (Tomás Gutiérrez Alea. Cuba, 1962. 97 min.)


Las doce sillas













In Soviet Russia in 1927, a former member of nobility, Ippolit Matveyevich Vorobyaninov, works as a desk clerk, until his mother-in-law reveals on her deathbed that her family jewelry had been hidden from the Bolsheviks in one of the twelve chairs from the family’s dining room set. Those chairs, along with all other personal property, had been expropriated by the government after the Russian Revolution. He becomes a treasure hunter, and after the “smooth operator” and con-man Ostap Bender forces Kisa ("Kitty", Vorobyaninov’s funny childhood nickname, which Bender prefers) to partner with him, they set off to track down the chairs. This ultimately helps Kisa, who doesn’t possess Bender’s charm and is not as street-smart.

FRESHLATINO is a project that uses video installation to explore the work of fourteen practices from Ibero-America: from small-scale architectural structures to projects that integrate contemporary art, performance and architecture and even cross the boundaries into other disciplines. They present a new approach to the complexities of the contemporary city through interventions in public spaces. 

Ibero-America is neither a natural concept, nor geographically continuous. In its essence lie historical and cultural ties of great significance. It is a community formed by Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries from Europe and Latin America, in total, 22 states with 600 million inhabitants whose common origins result in endless forms of living, a transcontinental community of great depth and richness.

The process of discovering, understanding and explaining the phenomenon of emerging Ibero-American architecture is an exciting journey, for this architecture is essentially a heterogeneous and diverse group that identifies its similarities by interpreting contemporary culture. To go about absorbing work by this group of young people is in itself a unique lesson on how to start up a professional practice: they work individually, in pairs, or by forming teams of up to twelve people. Thanks to modern communication technologies, they have managed to overcome global distances whilst at the same time remaining isolated from the everyday events in their immediate surroundings.

Freshlatino is a documentary platform which creates links between both sides of the Atlantic, re-sketching a new cultural geography, a new map.

The continual economic and political crises in Latin America are reflected in the architectural projects, since there is a clear interaction between politics and creativity, the economy and urbanisation within the city.

fresa y chocolate

Nancy (Mirta Ibarra) y Diego









 Remain as a tribute to the understanding and tolerance, and as a testament to the challenging years in the midst of a bloody battle to be opened in this island Socialism, its constructors were torn between the old dogmas and prejudices and the new morality. The story of David and Diego is the story of two human beings in search of an area in which to be.

Opening the complex world of relationships, prejudice and need for communication, complex situations that lead us to conclude that solidarity is one of the best inventions of man.
