Gernika



Collecting footage for my next film a few months ago on market day in Gernika, with my firstborn, Noa. My great grandmother was killed here in 1937, when Franco's Nationalists deliberately chose the busy market day to bomb the quiet, rural village. For lots of reasons, revisiting Gernika with my little family was a poignant moment. Photo by my dear brother Xabi.

    I'm sorry to hear of your grandmother's fate. That's incredibly sad. Franco was a big time SOB. The day we see the last of dictators and their pyschophants in this world will be a great day.
