It is our pleasure to invite you to the American Premiere of Trisha Ziff's film "The Mexican Suitcase". It will be screened as part of the LALIFF-Los Angeles Latino Film Festival- this coming Saturday, July 24, at the Egyptian Theater. If you are in the L.A. area don't miss out the opportunity to see this intriguing documentary of the recovered lost photographs from the Spanish Civil War.
But, if you are not anywhere close to Los Angeles this weekend, don't fret. We invite you to take a look at the online gallery, also by Trisha Ziff, in which she shares with us the riveting story of how she helped recover this treasure vault that contains unpublished work by Robert Capa, David Seymour (alias Chim) and Gerda Taro, considered lost since 1939. Take a look here.
And finally, to close-off this special number, we'd like to invite you to download this free PDF by Colombian historian, Fernando Toledo, allowing us to take a closer look to the enigmatic figure of Gerda Taro. Learn more about this incredible woman that, together with Robert Capa, captured some of the most emblematic images of the Spanish Civil War.
