SYNOPSIS

Picasso’s “Guernica” is one of the most famous paintings of the 20th Century created by the artist in response to the bombing and destroying the ancient Basque town by the German Airforce during the Spanish Civil War. The painting is a passionate protest against war as well as a fascinating work of art.

Resnais incorporates ingenious, rapid cut editing strategies and fragmented, subset images that not only visually integrate the principles of cubism in cinematic form but also reflects Spain’s struggle under fascism at the end of World War II.
