    Film screening of Soldados de Salamina based on the novel by Javier Cercas. Presented by Marta Villar (BU lecturer).
    Synopsis: A novelist who has stopped writing investigates a true story from the final days of the Civil War. The writer and Falangist Rafael Sánchez Mazas was shot by firing squad together with 50 other prisoners, but was able to flee and hide in the forest. It seems that a soldier, combing the zone for his capture, found him but allowed him to escape. The writer puts these pieces together, a puzzle plagued by contradictions and enigmatic characters. Through this investigation, and though she is not aware of it, the writer doesn’t only search for the truth, but also for herself.
