L’OMBRE DE GOYA PAR JEAN-CLAUDE CARRIÈRE(GOYA, CARRIERE AND THE GHOST OF BUNUEL )
In his last journey, screenwriter Jean Claude Carriere returns to Spain and talks to us about the painter Francisco de Goya, that he always admired and o whom he dedicated a film, “The Ghosts of Goya” with Milos Forman.
Very quickly, personal memories come up. Buñuel and surrealism obviously, but also how Goya anticipated modernism, not only in the pictorial sense but also on the topics covered: wars, migrants, disability (Goya was deaf), the ”little people” and above all, the stigmata of a mad world. Goya who, as Malraux said, is the last of the Classics and the first of the Moderns. Travelling to Goya’s key places, diving into his abundant work, the filmmaker José Luis López-Linares (Bosch: The Garden of Dreams) and Jean-Claude Carriere (one of the most prolific screentwriters of all times (Belle de Jour, That Obscure Object of Desire, Valmont, At Eternity’s Gate) invite us to a journey into human genius.
