Federico Garcia Lorca:
TERESA JOSÉ BERGANZA
MARCOS ZURINAGA, JUAN ANTONIO REMOS
JUAN ANTONIO RUÍZ ANCHÍA, TEO ESCAMILLA
Zurinaga describes DEATH IN GRANADA as a metaphor, “an artistic approach to a historical event. We combine historical data with fiction to make a coherent thriller. Therefore, it’s important to say that this film doesn’t aim to be a documentary about the last days of Lorca, nor a biography of his life. I am interested in presenting a point of view about what happened to Lorca and how it happened, but it’s my personal interpretation of the facts. “
Zurinaga admires and is particularly attracted to Lorca because it represents “a rare combination in an artist: his life, work and death are merged into a single process of lasting creations. In most artists, there is a contradiction between these elements. In the case of Lorca, everything is united. He was weak and vulnerable, but at the same time, full of energy and strength. It would have been easy to get away from his ideas, his poetry and his sexuality. But instead, everything he did seemed to provoke a violent death. “
