It’s February 1939. Spanish republicans are fleeing Francisco Franco’s dictatorship to France. The French government has built a concentration camp, confining the refugees, where they barely have access to hygiene, water, and food. In one of these camps, separated by barbed wire, two men will become friends. One is a guard, and the other is Josep Bartoli—a Catalonian illustrator who fights against Franco’s regime.

Follow Bartoli’s story in Josep (2020, 90 minutes, French with English subtitles), a new animated film with striking visuals and a beautiful story. Josep won the European Film Award for Best Animated Feature Film.

The film will be screened in person in the Museum’s Edmond J. Safra Hall. Tickets are $5 each for Museum members or $10 each for the general public. If you’re not a member, join today. If you’re already a member, log in and the member discount will be reflected in your cart.
