July 10, 2011

Trisha Ziff, the curator and filmmaker who was instrumental in the recovery of the “Mexican Suitcase,” is interviewed in El País about her documentary Mexican Suitcase, which retraces the miraculous journey of the more than 4,000 Spanish Civil War negatives from Paris to Mexico to New York.  A reflection on memory, history, and photography as cultural patrimony, the film puts the work by Capa, Taro, and Chim in the context of Spain’s recovery of historical memory and Spanish Republican exile in Mexico.
