- The Lost Paradise
October 6 at 4:00 p.m.
East Building Auditorium
The daughter of a republican intellectual who died while in exile returns to her ancestral home in a village in Castile to take charge of her father’s legacy. Capturing the disenchantment of Spanish exiles who left their homes to protest Franco’s fascist regime, but who then returned to find that democracy had not made much difference, Patino based his narrative on his own life experiences. In a literary subplot, the daughter (who has been living in Germany) is also in the process of translating the German lyric poet Friedrich Hölderlin’s Hyperion into Spanish. (1985, subtitles, 35mm, 94 minutes)
