A boat laden with…

Our colleague Monica Jato, in the department of Hispanic studies, recently made this film about the Basque author Cecilia G. de Guilarte, who was exiled from Spain after the Civil War and didn’t return until the 1960s—when her series of newspaper articles about her exile, Un barco cargado de… [A boat laden with…], was censored by a regime still headed by General Franco.

 

 

The articles are now available in a scholarly edition that Monica has also produced, in Spanish, in the Biblioteca del Exilio series.

You can read more about the project on its bilingual blog, which contains details of where the film has been screened.
