As a painter in the court of King Carlos IV, Goya – played by the great Lithuanian actor Donatas Banionis (The Red Tent, Solaris) – has attained wealth and reputation. He believes in King and Church, yet he is also a Spaniard who dearly loves his people.

This contradiction presents him with a dilemma. Based on Lion Feuchtwanger’s novel, Goya is one of ten East German films originally shot in 70mm. This release is the director’s cut and shows the influence of great filmmakers from Buñuel and Saura, to Eisenstein. Goya was nominated for the Golden Prize at the 1971 Moscow International Film Festival.

Director: Konrad Wolf
Writer: Lion Feuchtwanger (novel), Angel Vagenshtain (scenario), Konrad Wolf
Actors: Donatas Banionis, Olivera Katarina, Fred Düren, Tatyana Lolova

Revered Lithuanian actor Donatas Banionis wields the masterful brush of celebrated Spanish artist Don Francisco de Goya Lucientes in this biopic shot in 70 mm and directed by Konrad Wolf.

Having attained boundless wealth and iconic status as a painter in the court of King Carlos IV, Goya falls head over heels for a beautiful princess while becoming increasingly separated from the suffering of the Spanish people. Upon hearing singer Maria Rosario sing revolutionary ballads in a Madrid tavern, however, the detached artist finds becomes better acquainted with the popular singer while growing more reflective than ever before. Later, when Marie is brought before the Inquisition, Goya is invited to witness her trial and becomes acutely aware of the dangers he should face should he be bold enough to follow her example and stray from the official path. Over time Goya finds himself unable to resist the temptation to leave the castle and reconnect with the common people, a daring action that fuels his creativity while simultaneously highlighting his disloyalty in the eyes of the Inquisition.
