Gerald Brenan: el regreso definitivo Documentary presentation

May 1984. Gerald Brenan leaves Alhaurín el Grande, its Spanish residency, to be admitted to a London sanatorium. But the Hispanist, author of ‘El laberinto español’, requests to return to Spain because he wants to die in there. This request arrives to the Granada’s journalist, Eduardo Castro, whose publications started a citizen and institutional campaign to bring Brenan back, involving Junta de Andalucía, the Diputación de Málaga and the Alhaurín el Grande City Council.
This documentary, directed by Emilio Ruiz Barrachina, tells forty years later, thanks to the protagonists' statements, the story of the final return of the author, who explained to Spain why it bled out in a fratricidal war.  He died in Alhaurín el Grande almost three years later. Now he rests in peace at the English Cemetery in Malaga.
Told by the poet and journalist, José Infante, who interviewed Brenan for Informe Semanal, the documentary is an initiative of the Alhaurín el Grande City Council, where the Hispanist bequeathed his personal library, and is part of the activities to commemorate the fortieth anniversary of the writer's return on the 21st of June 1984.
An Abengsa Innovación y Gestión Cultural y Hemisphere Films production.
Funded by Diputación de Málaga and the Alhaurín el Grande City Council.
