GOYA IN BORDEAUX, The Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston, Wednesday, 26. June 2019

Francisco Goya (1746-1828), deaf and ill, lives the last years of his life in voluntary exile in Bordeaux, a Liberal protesting the oppressive rule of Ferdinand VII. He's living with his much younger wife Leocadia and their daughter Rosario. He continues to paint at night, and in flashbacks stirred by conversations with his daughter, by awful headaches, and by the befuddlement of age, he relives key times in his life, particularly his relationship with the Duchess of Alba, his discovery of how he wanted to paint (insight provided by Velázquez's work), and his lifelong celebration of the imagination. Throughout, his reveries become tableaux of his IN BORDEAUXCountry:  Spain 1999 Director: Carlos SauraWriter: Carlos Saura, Luigi ScattiniIn Spanish with English subtitlesWednesday JUNE 26th @6pmInstitute of Hispanic Culture of HoustonFree admission.
