For seventy years much of legendary photographer Robert Capa's work on the Spanish Civil War was presumed lost forever, the negatives having disappeared from his Parisian studio in the early days of the Second World War. In this film we learn the astonishing story behind the recent discovery of these breathtaking images by Capa and colleagues Taro and Seymour ­ from the battlefields of Spain, all the way to their eventual rediscovery in Mexico City. Dynamic, thought-provoking photography, archival footage and interviews with survivors and experts make this a must-see for all history and photography lovers. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Stranger than Fiction.
