The Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) left more than a million dead and over 500 thousand refugees, of which some 20 thousand are taken in by Mexico. Among them were the filmmaker’s grandparents, parents, aunt, and some of their friends. A tragedy of epic dimensions that turned into the eventful stories of survival and assimilation by the subjects, recalling their experiences and revealing the shared history between Mexico and Spain in the 20th century and beyond.
Wednesday, June 21, 2023: 7:00 A Zoom Q&A with filmmaker Juan Francisco Urrusti will follow this screening.
