Screening: Goya’s Ghosts
Goya’s Ghosts is a sweeping historical epic, told through the eyes of celebrated Spanish painter Francisco Goya (Stellan Skarsgård).
Set against the backdrop of political turmoil at the end of the Spanish Inquisition and start of the invasion of Spain by Napoleon’s army, the film captures the essence and beauty of Goya’s work which is best known for both the colorful depictions of the royal court and its people, and his grim depictions of the brutality of war and life in 18th–century Spain. When Goya’s beautiful muse (Natalie Portman) is accused of being a heretic, renowned painter Francisco Goya must convince his old friend Lorenzo (Javier Bardem), a power-hungry monk and leader of the Spanish Inquisition, to spare her life.
