A la ca(sz)a de Rosa, 2003

In one of the poorest quarters of Havana, René Francisco, along with neighbors, restored the completely dilapidated house of 83-year-old Rosa. She was chosen by the neighborhood residents in a basic democratic survey organized by René Francisco, because she had always helped others her whole life. A video documents the process, from the survey up to completion of the building measures.

During a three month stipend in Germany, René Francisco sought financial support for the project. The presentation in the Foto/Graphik Galerie Käthe Kollwitz also served this purpose - see zoom page.
