Bécquer y las brujas
España. 2018. 82’. Documental
In 1864 Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer, afflicted by his health problems, retires to the Monastery of Veruela. There, led by his romantic spirit, he starts a journey through the surrounding villages and discovers a world full of ancient customs and legends that all converged into a small town at the foot of the Moncayo: TRASMOZ, the witches ‘place, the only town officially damn in Spain.
Overwhelmed in the fast moving 21st century, a young poet in crisis, finds Bécquer´s Letters from my cell. Trapped by the story, she decides to follow the poet’s route and discover the hidden magic from her own modern times point of view. This is how the legends are shed against reality, the history of witchcraft, the Medieval Inquisition, and the other side of the black legend of the Spanish Inquisition.
The documentary uncovers the lesser known side of Bécquer. The evolution of a truly patient, multidisciplinary and smiling artist, and the sensitivity that was not even known by his friends until the compilation of his Rimas was published after his death. His story with the witches takes place between the eclipse of the sun of 1860 and the eclipse of 1870, in his native Seville, thirty minutes after his death. His last words, “any mortal”, left in the air even in his last breath his love for mystery.
