César Manrique, artist and architect, transformed the volcanic island of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands.Public art, cultural buildings, modernist furniture were all crafted on the island. His most striking legacies are the fantastical attractions he carved into the volcanic landscape in the 1960sand70s–the prime example being the Jameos Del Agua, a volcanic tunnel turned cultural centre that features a concert hall, dance floors and bars.Spanish with English subtitles. Canadian premiere.
Presented in partnership with the Winnipeg Public Library
