Josep: An Animated Biographical Film Directed by Aurel

October 18 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$7.00 – $15.00

Join us for a screening of Josep and a discussion with French illustrator and director, Aurel. 

February 1939. Spanish republicans are fleeing Franco’s dictatorship to France. The French government built concentration camps, confining the refugees, where they barely have access to hygiene, water and food. In one of these camps, separated by barbed wire, two men will become friends. One is a guard, the other is Josep Bartoli (Barcelona 1910 – NYC 1995), an illustrator who fights against Franco’s regime.
