Federico García Lorca
remembering the earthStreaming Video - 2006 | Spanish
Over half a century has passed since famed poet-playwright Federico García Lorca was killed in Granada at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. He lives on, however, in his immortal Canciones, Romancero Gitano, and La Casa de Bernarda Alba and other works that captured the soul of espana and the heart of the literary world. This documentary, produced by RTVE, traces his life from Fuentevagueros in Andalusia to his death at age 38 in 1936. Archival footage and personal interviews with family members, poets, writers, and artists including Edward Albee and Philip Levine provide an accurate portrait of both Lorca the man and the literary giant. Portions of Lorca's most famous works, interwoven throughout the program, are accompanied by contemporary images of the places he held most dear.
