In Person: Director Jon Garano

Giant lends humanity and context to a historical figure known as the Giant from Altzo. In the Spanish civil war of the 1830s, as in any war for the monarchy, peasants sacrificed their sons but gained nothing. Politics, poverty, and loss are thus the background for this strange tale: When Martín returns disabled from the front, he finds his brother, Joaquín, much changed; Joaquín has developed gigantism, a painful condition both physically and socially. Martín is determined to save the farm by effectively selling his brother, touring him, first in Spain and then internationally, as the tallest man in the world. The money comes in, but Joaquín continues to hear his bones growing. The winner of 10 Goyas (the Spanish Oscars©), Giant is distinguished by meticulous lighting and cinematography that create the experience of an Old Master painting moving and, like Joaquín and the world, changing.—Judy Bloch

In Spanish and Basque with English subtitles
