Federico García Lorca
I want to recommend the movie “Poucas Cinzas”, which has been a lot critized by specialists, who tells the story of student´s lives from Lorca, Salvador Dali and Luis Bruñel. To picture the context in which Garcia Lorca lived, murdered at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War.
Another important movie is “Morte em Granada” or “O desaparecimento de Garcia Lorca”, which tells the last years of Lorca.
“A las cinco de la tarde”, J. A. Bardem.
When considering books, I recommend: “Federico García Lorca, Vida, Pasión y muerte de Federico García Lorca”, de Ian Gibson, volumes I and II.“O assassinato de García Lorca”, de Ian Gibson.“Federico Garcia Lorca”, David Lerma González.
On June´s lecture we´ll explain a detail of his world´s vision, his contribution to the democracy, his love for life, his culture, his suffering for the construction of Spain that exists today. Anything that exists today, the freedom, would not exist if it were not the devotion until death of men like Lorca.
As far as I know, he is the Spanish poet most read after Cervantes. And this is a lot!
Lorca´s life is intimately connect with the beginning of the Civil War. In those wonderful 20´s, freedom of speech reached levels that had never been seen before in modern civilization.
In the whole world, a blow of humanity has reached for a while this so suffered humanity. After the terrible massacre in the First World War, there was a time of excitement when people thought that thing could not happen anymore! And 20 years later it happened worst. But, this is other story for another blog.
“A las cinco de la tarde” is the most famous põem from Lorca that tells how cruelty had been installed again in Europe. Until what level can the ignorance goes.
We´re talking about 1936. Max Planck described the quantum in 1900. Heisenberg, the uncertainty principle in 1927. Shrödinger, the wave function in 1935.
All the Quantum Mechanic was almost described in 1936. The world of Lorca´s murderers had already disappeared. They only didn´t know. And they didn´t know because what mattered to them know that atom exists and how it works?
What mattered to them was to keep the Middle Age forever, to keep the Dark Ages forever or install it for certain. This is their wish until today and they work for it day by day.
And those one who have already understood that the Quantum Mechanic changed ev everything in the world?
When those who have understood, will start working so hard as them, but for the construction of world of peace and love?
