The Mexican Suitcase

Sunday, June 9, 2019 - 19:30

This documentary proved to be one of the most popular screenings from the Festival - and deservedly so. The story of three lost boxes recovered in Mexico in 2007. The boxes, misplaced in the chaos of WWII, contained 4,400 negatives of the war photographers of the Spanish Civil War, including those of Robert Capra. Beautiful score by Michael Nyman.
