The Mexican Suitcase

Georgetown University’s Spanish and Portuguese Department and The 7th Annual Graduate Portuguese and Hispanic Symposium invite you to a screening of The Mexican Suitcase Q & A with film director Trisha Ziff. Saturday, April 5th 4:15pm ICC 107

The Mexican Suitcase tells the story of the recovery of 4,500 negatives taken by renowned photographers Robert Capa, Gerda Taro and David ’Chim’ Seymour during the Spanish Civil War and recovered 70 years later, in a closet in Mexico City. The Mexican Suitcase looks at the journey of these ”lost” negatives from the war in Spain, to the exile to France and to Mexico, where they remained safe for more than half a century. The Mexican Suitcase also looks at the legacy of the war that Spain has only recently begun to address after decades of repression and silence.
