Exiles

(Exilios)
Carmen Vidal | Documentary

2020 | 53 minutes | Spain, Mexico

Exiles reveals the lives of three artists who fled the Spanish Civil War to reinvent themselves in Mexico, making an impact on art and culture.

Synopsis

After the beginning of the Spanish Civil War (1936), between 20 and 30 thousand people arrived in Mexico; the government gave passports and nationality to all those who requested, and it was the only country that never recognized the dictatorship of Francisco Franco.

Exiles tells the story of three artists who lived and died in Mexico: Julia Giménez-Cacho: mother of six children and housewife who, at the age of 50, decided to reinvent herself and became an artist; Emilio García Riera: historian and film critic, who, with a childhood deeply marked by the war, became a key figure in Mexican cinema; and Elvira Gascón: artist and political activist, who became one of Mexico's leading women muralists, which at the time was only a male thing.
