Koldo Serra starts this month filming a blockbuster inspired by reporter George Steer
Bilbabo. "The statement released by Salamanca according to which Guernica was destroyed by the red is absolutely false. I have spoken with over twenty refugees around the city the night of destruction. And they all agree on the details. A journalist got me three bombs, three German, dated 1936. I have been in the city until one-thirty in the morning and nowhere could feel the smell of oil. Much of Gernika is not a heap of ashes, but a pile of rubble. "
George Steer (1909-1945) has gone down in the annals of reporters for his chronicle of the bombing of Gernika. The South African-born British journalist was one of the few witnesses to the destruction of the town. His chronicle of April 28, 1937, cover of 'Times' British and the 'New York Times' US, shocked the world to refute the thesis of the national side and reveal the authorship of the German Condor Legion in the devastating air raid on the civilians. Their exciting stories encouraged Pablo Picasso to paint the celebrated 'Guernica', at the request of the Government of the Republic for the International Exhibition of 1937 in Paris.
Steer figure inspires the protagonist of 'Guernica', a blockbuster that director Koldo Serra begin filming later this month. While not strictly a biography (the protagonist Henry will be called), the film tells "a story of love in a war background," according to director Getxo. "The character has traits Steer, but Ernest Hemingway and Robert Capa. All of them were given mint is a fiction inspired by real events. " He is a brilliant reporter low hours left to cynicism and alcohol; she an employee of the Republican government censorship, which oversees the news that journalists can send abroad. "It's a universal story that could be spent in any war in Guernica or Hiroshima", says the director, who highlights the intimate nature of the film despite the dramatic recreation of the bombing of the village. Quips 'nearest' The English Patient 'and' Atonement 'that' It will be Pearl Harbor. " "Hopefully it looks like 'Casablanca' '.
Serra does not offer many details of his second feature because they are still closing international distribution agreements. 'Guernica' is a co-production between Spain and the United States over five million euro budget. It will shoot for eight weeks entirely on location and natural locations of Bilbao, Guernica and other towns of Bizkaia. He moved to a team of a hundred people and will be a casting call for extras elect will be needed. Owned by EiTB, Canal Sur and Euskaltel, the film has the support of the City of Bilbao and Gernika, Basquetour and Council of Bizkaia.
"The will ride in English for two reasons: It is justified because the story tells of foreign correspondents and because only then can sell on the international market to recoup the investment", explains the director, who hides until the last moment the name of " foreign actor "who will play the transcript of Steer. It will certainly be an Anglo star will join a cast that already confirmed María Valverde, Barbara Goenaga, Alex Garcia, Victor Clavijo, Irene Escolar, Ramon Barea and Elena Irureta. Spanish producers are Joseph Alba, Carlos Clavijo and Nahikari Ipiña; Figure US side by Daniel Dreifuss, who was nominated for an Oscar with 'No', the Chilean Pablo Larrain.
Koldo Serra (Bilbao, 1975) learned to handle the camera rolling skate videos being just a teenager before becoming one of the Basque filmmakers reference. Tanning in advertising, the video and the series (he has directed 'leakage' and 'The gift of Alba' and ads like MediaMarkt with Arturo Valls you can see these days), debuted in the film nine years ago with ' Backwoods', an atmospheric thriller also in English with Gary Oldman, Virginie Ledoyen and Aitana Sanchez-Gijon. His second feature the faces with the caution to be faithful to historical facts and recreate with the help of digital effects a slaughter that caused 126 deaths and made Gernika in the history books. "We work with historians to avoid making blunders. As Bilbao, I would tell this story well and do justice to what happened there. " Serra takes more than three years trying to build a project that was born in Los Angeles thanks to an immersion program in the American market Egeda, the management entity rights of producers. The film, written by Barney Cohen ("Friday the 13th, the last chapter ') and Carlos Clavijo, sought funding at the Berlinale 2013 and after much effort live Slate tee off in a few weeks. The only regret the director is not able to count on Álex Angulo wept, for I had booked "a valuable role."
