Federico Garcia Lorca remembering the earth by Federico García Lorca( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over half a century has passed since famed poet-playwright Federico Garcia Lorca was killed in Granada at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. He lives on, however, in his immortal Canciones, Romancero Gitano, and La Casa de Bernarda Alba and other works that captured the soul of espana and the heart of the literary world. This documentary, produced by RTVE, traces his life from Fuentevagueros in Andalusia to his death at age 38 in 1936. Archival footage and personal interviews with family members, poets, writers, and artists including Edward Albee and Philip Levine provide an accurate portrait of both Lorca the man and the literary giant.

El Cantar de mio cid by Carmelo Valero Planas( Visual )

9 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in Spanish and English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"El Cid is unique among the world's great epics because it was composed so close to the actual historical events (a mere 40 years after the death of Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, el Cid himself) that we can distinguish between man and legend. Meticulous attention to historical detail, spectacular cinematic production values, and the swashbuckling plot itself make this medieval epic superbly entertaining as well as educational. An RTVE Production. (60 minutes)."

Polish king Basilio has read in the stars that his newly born son Segismundo is destined to be a tyrant. Accepting the prediction as true, he confines his son to a tower. Twenty years later, Basilio, concerned about the succession to his throne, decides to see whether predestination or free will is the stronger force. Segismundo is drugged and brought to court asleep: if he can control his passions, he is fit to reign; if not, he will be returned to his prison and told that his palace experience was only a dream. Upon awakening in court, Segismundo is told of his royal heritage, but is unable to control his rage.

Clarin Leopoldo Alas la regenta by Leopoldo Alas( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mere name, Clarin, the notorious novelist and Spanish literary critic, was enough to turn a 19th-century writer's blood cold. His biting and often bellicose articles made him the nation's most feared critical voice. This program, produced by RTVE, is a dramatization of Clarin's most famous work, La Regenta (The Professor's Wife), generally considered the greatest Spanish naturalistic novel of that period. Brimming with political irony and stinging commentary on social scandals of the day, the work consecrated Clarin as a major literary genius, and earned for itself a lofty place in the canon of Spanish literature. (Spanish with English subtitles, 5 hours)
