Searching for Gerda TaroBy
Spain, July 1936. As the country flares up, Gerda Taro and her partner Robert Capa rush to fight alongside the Republicans to document and photograph the battle against Franco’s troops. Their goal is to shake and awaken the sleeping consciousness of an indecisive Europe. Out of this passion, Gerda Taro did not come out alive, dying on the eve of her 27th birthday. Thanks to recent uncovering of her work, this documentary shines a new light on her role as war photographer and artist. Through her portrait we dive into the too-often forgotten place of women in social and historical representation of the war effort.
