Film in English – Gernika
The Almuñécar film in English (with subtitles in Spanish) this week will be Gernika. TODAY Tuesday 21st March at 1800 hrs in the main auditorium, Casa de la Cultura.
Apologies for short notice but only confirmed today.
It’s been around 80 years since the bombardment by Hitler’s Condor Legion of the Basque town called Guernika (Basque spelling). The attack turned the town into one of history’s enduring insights into the suffering of a civilian population during war, this is the first full-length feature film to tackle the tragedy.
Most of the film is based on the testimonies of witnesses to the events of 26 April 1937 all recorded by director Koldo Serra.
