Alex Guimerà, Juan Pajares
Part of the Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival Season
Angono Mba, an 80 year-old Guinean, recalls the expedition when he worked as porter for the filmmaker Hernandez Sanjuan, traveling around Spanish Guinea from 1944 to 1946, in search of a mysterious lake where, legend had e it, you could see 10,000 elephants. From the Spanish filmmaker’s obsession with finding something, to the actual adventures of the expedition, this is a tale of fascination with Africa, the past, and memory.
Both screenings will feature an introduction by Dr Huw Lewis, senior lecturer in Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies at University of Edinburgh.
