Picasso Presents Gernika Screening at Euzko Etxea
The Euzko Etxea of New York invites everyone to a screening of “Picasso Presents Gernika” on Saturday, June 5th at 6pm. The story was inspired by a story told Dr. Begoña Echeverria by a British friend about her own father and the history of Picasso’s “Guernica.” This docudrama is about the child refugee crisis that was the result of Hitler’s 1937 bombing of Gernika, and Picasso’s artistic response to the horrific event. The work’s author, Dr. Begoña Echeverria will attend along with theater scholar Dr. Annika Speer who collaborated with Echeverria on the project. For more information, click here.
