Louis Frank, Spain, 1939, [U], 55 mins

A striking account of the Spanish Civil War, made during the last desperate days of the Republic. Drawn from the Republic’s rich film archives, this documentary provides in its partisan commentary and searing footage, a poignant epitaph to the dashed hopes of the Popular Front.


Aelwen Wetherby, Spain/France, 2012, [U] 60 mins.

This film tells the story of a book, of a son’s search for a father, and of a road trip through Spanish history. Through interviews, archival footage, and the Spanish landscape, however, it will explore much more than this. Through the parallel narratives behind James Neugass’ War Is Beautiful and this contemporary quest to revisit the sites of its pages, this film seeks to bridge international and local experiences of the Spanish Civil War.
Discussion:  Dr Miriam Frank, daughter of director, author and translator and 
Dr Richard Baxell, Historian, Author of among other books: British Volunteers in the Spanish Civil War: The British Battalion in the International Brigades 1936-1939, Chair of International Brigades Memorial Trust
