Nedar (Swim, 2008) is a personal documentary by the filmmaker to give her own family a past. The starting point is the mysterious execution of Subirana’s grandfather after the Spanish Civil War. About the fragility of personal identity shared by women. A profound reflection about the cruel secondary effects of aging in the transmission of the collective memory.
A remarkable achievement, executed with a beautiful simplicity.
The screening will be followed by a film discussion.
Filmmaker Carla Subirana will discuss film, trauma and Spanish Civil War in a round table with Maria Dasca, lecturer in Catalan Studies, Harvard, and Esther Gimeno, Assistant Professor of the Practice, Boston College.
