Laura Hojman | Spain | 2020 | 94 min.
O.V. in French and Spanish subtitled in Spanish and English

"These blue days and this childhood sun": this is the last verse Antonio Machado wrote before he died, and where the beginning and end of his life, his childhood in Seville and his exile in Collioure merge. Taking on this title, this film takes a look at his life through the places in which he lived and worked. Personalities such as Ian Gibson, Elvira Lindo, Antonio Muñoz Molina and Luis García Montero, among others, accompany us in this portrait of Machado the poet, philosopher and playwright, a civic man who inherited the values of the Institución Libre de Enseñanza, which defended culture and education as motors of change in society.
