Discussion with Sebastiaan Faber, Professor of Hispanic Studies at Oberlin College and Chair of ALBA’s Board of Governors, to follow.


The story of the recovery of the 4,500 negative taken by photographers Robert Capa, Gerda Taro, and David Seymour during the Spanish Civil War.  The film follows the journey of these negatives to Mexico – recovered seventy years later.  The Mexican Suitcase brings together three narratives: the suitcase, the exile story, and looks at how people in Spain today address their own past.
