de la Cruz Collection screens Whispering Cave, a documentary on Ana Mendieta’s sculptures in Cuba

Fri Sep 27, 2019

In a brief yet prolific career, Ana Mendieta created groundbreaking work that addressed themes such as exile, displacement, and a return to the landscape, all of which remain a source of public fascination and mystery. In 1981, she became the first Cuban exile to be given permission to create works on the island and chose to carve a series of abstracted female forms into the caves of Jaruco, Cuba, at two different sites. Art historians and close friends to Mendieta have long presumed one of the sites to have been destroyed. After years of archival research from managing the artist’s Estate, filmmaker Raquel Cecilia ventures to the caves to uncover the truth.
