Synopsis

On April 27, 1937, in the midst of the grueling and increasingly brutal Spanish Civil War, the ancient Basque town of Guernica was subjected to aprotracted bombardment campaign by German forces. the film is composed of a series of fractured, compartmentalized images that trace the evolution of the paintings and sculptures of Pablo Picasso from 1906 to 1937 leading to his masterwork Guernica. The images are accompanied by an evocative narrative ode written by French lyrical poet Paul Éluard and recited in an off-screen performance reading by Jacques Pruvost and María Casarès. is a thoughtful and passionate meditation on barbarism, warfare, and human resilience.

Review

Director

  • Alain Resnais

    One of France’s most distinctive and highly regarded directors, Alain Resnais was born in Vannes, France, in 1922. Resnais’ firstfull-length film was (1959). The cinema of Alain Resnais has always been challenging the boundaries and our assumptions of what cinema should be about, perhaps more successfully than any other director. Alain Resnais’ work is challenging, mysterious and often entertaining, but it is also remarkably coherent, showing a keen appreciation of human issues whilst exposing acreative force of great talent and daring. Far from Vietnam(1967)Hiroshima , My Love (1959)Toute la Mémoire du Monde (1956)Night and Fog (1955)Guernica (1949)​
