CUBAN CANVAS (2018) Short Documentary
| 15 Min
| Kavery Kaul
In Havana, a leading painter of the new generation Roger Toledo Bueno mines the past through the masters who started their careers before him — Manuel Mendive, Rocio Garcia and Roberto Diago. With his contemporary Ariamna Contino, he looks to the future. This intriguing inter-generational story opens a rare window on rich experimentation with form and content as it connects the lines between art and life. Film Critic Jennifer Merin calls it a “beautifully rendered” documentary that gives viewers an opportunity “to inhale images and ideas”.
