In 1939, thousands of Spanish republicans crowded onto Argelès Beach, fleeing from a lost war. Many met their death there. Gerardo Lizarraga survived. A photo taken by a stranger saved his life. Seven years later, he would pose with that stranger at the photographer’s wedding in Mexico. On that beach, Lizarraga did his best drawings. They also survived, although barely anyone has seen them. Like the films he played a part in or all those projects of his that flopped one by one.
