On IMDb, it says France 1950, black & white, runtime 13 min., directed by
Alain Resnais; this is the correct film. When the Lincoln Center included
this title in a film series this spring, their advertising said "Resnais
employs the [Picasso] painting ["Guernica"] and Maria Casares's narration
of a passionately poetical text by Paul Eluard to create what's been called
'a hymn to innocence and peace.' "
I thought at first I might have found the film in the Museum of Modern Art
catalog, but then I realized it can't be right. Several details don't
match: 1949, 8 minutes, U.S.A., by Robert Flaherty and David Flaherty, and
Does anyone know where the Resnais film "Guernica" is available for rent?
Many thanks to anyone who can give me info.
