Guernica, the oldest town of the Basques and the center of their cultural tradition, was completely destroyed yesterday afternoon by insurgent air attackers. " Thus he began the British journalist George Steer chronic sent after the bombing occurred on April 26, 1937 in Gernika, a witness that came to surround the front pages of newspapers like the Times and the New York Times .
Instead of sending information back Steer day dedicated to the event to take statements from survivors and decided to return to Gernika to glimpse the first rays of light that enveloped the tragedy a city still in flames after the attack by the Legion Condor.
That eagerness to tell what really happened, the spirit of fidelity to the truth is the same radiating Henry Howell, star of Gernika , the new film by Koldo Serra facing today the seventh of his eight-week shoot. These also will be a decisive tape heads the Getxo days, because since last Wednesday have begun to shoot the scenes of the tragic bombing at venues such as the Alava town of Artziniega or coastal Lekeitio, in addition to the Gernika itself. The three recreate the city during that Monday market, while two abandoned villages of Zaragoza will serve to show the bleak atmosphere after the attack.
During these past six weeks, the team has set back the most emblematic places of Bilbao until 1937 to tell the story of the more united "the characters and feelings." This stretch of filming, by contrast, focuses on the bombing, perhaps the most laborious part but at the same time, most spectacular film dared to venture Serra few days ago.
PLAYERS sheltered behind the stately facade of Barakaldo Munoa palace, once owned by businessman Horacio Echevarrieta, the team that leads the Basque filmmaker finalizing Tuesday sequences located in such a scenario. A metal sign next to the front door welcomed all and sundry: Head of Press and Propaganda Department of the Government of the Second Republic .
Inside, full of butts, reflecting ashtrays tense hours of waiting. In front of them, an entourage of black Remington, tired of constant rattle to move what happened in front. "My character, a pretty young girl, gets an important position in this press office because he is good with languages and also wants to be a writer," says the actress Maria Valverde, while watching with eager eyes every corner of the spacious room.
She is Teresa, "a rather cold and serious woman first" working as censorship in the press office of the Second Republic. There he meets other journalists who are covering the information of the Civil War between Henry Howell found (James D'Arcy), "one of her idols." Gradually this American journalist in low hours achieved a dent in her heart, what Teresa will infuse courage to tell what really happened in Gernika.
"So, at first Henry cares less and less what he does, but when he meets Teresa awakens something inside," describes D'Arcy. That something will get the reporter to regain the passion for truth and "will return to life in every possible way," he adds.
The relationship, however, has a third vertex, Vasyl (Jack Davenport), the head of Teresa. "With him I have a special relationship and there is much love, so it will become a love triangle in which Carmen, my assistant in the office, will also be out there," adds Valverde, what Davenport replies that that special relationship Vasyl will make her fall in love madly. "It seems that could become more than just coworkers until he (D'Arcy) arrives and disrupts it," she laughs.
Valverde noted that Gernika is a "very coral" tape "of all the characters drink" with the viewer empathize achieved from the first minutes. With a smile, she admits that one of the biggest challenges is having to face is the language, as the film also includes scenes filmed in Basque. "The truth is I do not understand what I say, I can understand then but as she did not verbalize, so is the whole team helping me telling me little by little," he explains.
The three protagonists claim to feel a "great responsibility" for the opportunity to move the world the story of what happened in the bombing. They confess that they knew the facts through the Picasso and the film has given them the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history and feel "emotionally connected" to it. "On one of my days off a man came to tell me how his family had lived what happened and all these experiences have helped me to realize that what we are doing is important," sums Valverde.
