The Spanish Civil War had a tremendous impact on many leading artists and writers in Europe. In conjunction with San Diego Museum of Art's exhibition of Spanish painting, From El Greco to Dali, Sandie Holhuin, Associate Professor of History at the University of Oklahoma, will speak about this 20th century conflict and its reverberations throughout the art world. After her talk, audiences can enjoy the film adaptation of Ernest Hemingway's classic novel, "For Whom the Bell Tolls." This 1943 film, starring classic film stars Gary Cooper and Ingrid Bergman, tells the tale of an American (Cooper) finding romance with a young local girl (Bergman) while waiting to complete a desperate mission during the Spanish Civil War. This film has an approximate running time of 168 minutes.
The film screening will take place on October 7, 2011 at the San Diego Museum of Art. There will be a pre-film lecture by Sandie Holhuin at 7:00 PM and the movie will begin at 8:00 PM. Google Map.
