ARCHITEKTUR DER UNENDLICHKEIT directed by Christoph Schaub

Temporality and age are inherent in every object and creature and, depending on one’s outlook, may transcend to infinity. Schaub explores, together with the architects Peter Zumthor, Peter Märkli and Alvaro Siza Vieira, the artists James Turrell and Cristina Iglesias and drummer virtuoso Jojo Mayer, the magic of sacred spaces, defined here as far more than church buildings. Who owns spirituality?

During summer break, Leonel and Antuán intimately explore their universe far from adults in the Cuban countryside. With a con­ siderable age difference, their unique friendship is torn between games and fights, conversations about everyday life, existentialist questions, simple pleasures and boredom. While Cuban society undergoes a transitional period, the two friends also come to a crossroad.
