LE CRANE DE GOYA
by Samuel ALARCONl
82 minutes, 2018
The past is buried in a collective memory, under our feet. This is why we turn the earth, looking for relics and bones. Fragments of ourselves which express who we were, who we are. Where we come from.
“You are a major painter whose life is well-known, but whose death, though eventful, is known by few.
I will be thorough with the facts, rigorous with the evidence and cautious with the conclusions to tell the story of your death, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes.“
