About the film

After a brief voiceover by Jacques Pruvost highlighting the Guernica massacre, María Casares recites a poem by Paul Éluard on the subject, whilst oppressive musical arrangements and shots over the Guernica painting are accompanied with her voice.

Alain Resnais and Robert Hessens revisited Picasso’s work in order to return to that precise period in history; The atrocities of the Spanish Civil War and its tragic consequences.
