The extras are stone and give snuff, as onlookers in the games of mus. Well, not stone, which should be removed. But they should not speak. That's for real actors. Although the extras so are, in their way; They must gesturing, pretend not bother ... perhaps for the scene in which appeared to be suppressed in the final assembly. What are you going to do! It is film law. So it is that without their presence and work, commendable, could not carry out most movies. And Gernika , the film that is rolling Koldo Serra by Vizcaya land, is no exception.
It could not be. Gernika is because, among other things, a period film. And in this type of film, figuration is essential, provides the necessary realism. 78 years since the events described in it makes. Shelling, horrors and deprivations suffered by the population during the Civil War Cain. No one forgets. The extras either. Many who on Friday were in the recreation of 1937 that Bilbao remembered stories told by their grandparents, who lived that atrocity. So there were planted, willing to endure whatever it takes.
Ibeni spring, between the bridge of San Antón García Rivero and the school was chosen to film the street that day, a couple of scenes in which they appear two of the protagonists: he, the British James d'Arcy, the protagonist; her emerging Ingrid Jonsson Garcia, blond and delicate. See also left there María Valverde, although it was not his turn.
The protagonist of this story is Henry Howell, transcript of that legendary George Steer who told the world the atrocities committed in Guernica by German aircraft squadrons. For this occasion, the character of Howell stings a little here, Ernest Hemingway, a little beyond-Robert Capablanca, besides South African journalist himself. Beside him initially moves a Swedish reporter, reminiscent of that Gerda Taro, great photographer who accompanied Capa to Spain and eventually died in the retreat of the Republican army.
When the extras appear by Hika Ateneo, converted for the occasion in film (facade), the entire crew of this great production -six million to make a film in this country is almost a chimera is ready to a new workday. Just been underway since May 4 and morale remains high.
From the outset, the extras are numbers, which gave them to do the tests costume and hair, when his future was sealed in the film: some would gudaris, others republican militiamen, a few, civilians, and children ... children, the mud on the knees and dirty cheeks, always on the street, always playing, whether or not a war between. And that they did, behave like real actors, obedient, for the pride of their parents, their helpers peers and the entire film crew, starting with its director, Koldo Serra put a good face on things: You have to roll, so coats and umbrellas wardrobe some extras are added, and after a few tips on what to do each engine, slate and shouting !, all moving action. D'Arcy moves his tall, lanky figure in the mud, wearing a hat hiding his blue eyes and his mocking gesture.
14.30 to eat. By then, the extras have lost all track of time. Those who make gudaris militants and no longer know without mouthpiece cigarettes have had to turn. In the neighboring Institute Emilio Campuzano Secondary Education, there is a makeshift dining room. The children have finished their work, but they get to eat. They are one more. Being noticed. The food-the ranch, as militants, very into their paper- lengthens fair. You have to re-shoot.
It's time specialists. The tracks are mounted and above, the crane operator to raise his camera to address a complex decision: a militiaman hit and dragged through the mud to a German pilot course; It is accompanied by a pack of civilians who help him in his work. They are extras and give everything in a violent scene, very realistic, to be repeated again and again. Finally, some voices are heard from the black tents where Serra follows the development of the action: "It was good, it was all for today, thank you very much everybody." And all burst into spontaneous applause. Touch to return to real life, Fermin, Alberto, Leyre, Marta, Maribel, Jon, Inma, Txefa, Koldo, Arkaitz, Mikel, Inazio ... smile. His characters await, dumb, until 2016, when the film is released.
