ROUNDTABLE: THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR: TO WHAT END?



Guernica (1937), Pablo Picasso

When dealing with the Spanish Civil War in film, recourse to fantasy ("Pan’s Labyrinth") or the use of works of art ("Guernica") have underlined both the horror and the inherent difficulty in approaching the darker side of this conflict.
Its devastating effects (murders, silences, unanswered questions and exiles) have made an unconscious impression and left many marks that have been passed down through several generations.

The specific nature and basis of this war appear to centre on the question: What was the point of this war? What need did it fulfil?

A study of the psychology behind this war appears to suggest that it was “a war simply about killing”*, in which the destruction of the enemy became an end in itself. 

Tangui Perron, a historian specialising in the history of social and political cinema, and Francis Ratier, a psychoanalyst from Toulouse and a member of the Ecole de la Cause Freudienne, will offer their opinions.
