Highly recognised as one of the most important documentaries of the latest years, it’s a must for those passionated by History of Photography and Spain.
The Mexican suitcase tells the story of three lost boxes, found in a closet in Mexico City 2007.
Contained inside were 4,500 unique negatives, the work of three friends.
Paris 1936-1937, the finest photojournalists of their times were about to be exiled from Europe.
A flashback journey through the memories of the survivors, and in the statement of the Film Director Trisha Ziff “A film about passionate commitment to a cause and a people, by these photographers- this film I hope honors and respects their same vision“.
