“Visa al paraíso”, homenaje a un hombre olvidado por la historia

Por Alicia Valdez Alonso

En el marco de la XXXIII Feria Internacional del Libro del Palacio de Minería, la cineasta Lillian Liberman, presentó su documental Visa al paraíso, un homenaje al diplomático, escritor y periodista mexicano Gilberto Bosques, quien fuera el salvador de muchas vidas de republicanos españoles y judíos exiliados de Francia durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

“La vida es maravillosa y a veces te lleva a algo que tu sabes que es parte de tu destino pero todavía no sabes de qué manera” comenta la Directora y productora del documental, al respecto de cómo fue su acercamiento con el mítico Gilberto Bosques, quien fuera olvidado en los libros de la historia de México. El acercamiento entre Lillian Liberman y Gilberto Bosques fue una casualidad: “me invitaron a uno de sus cumpleaños, yo no sabía de quien se trataba, pero todos saludaban con mucho respeto y cariño a don Gilberto, no faltaba nadie en esa reunión, toda la izquierda ilustre mexicana estaba reunida en ese lugar”.

Este documental forma parte de un gran esfuerzo que inició con la recopilación de varias entrevistas que Lillian realizó con Don Gilberto Bosques, en las el periodista cuenta a detalle su vida y obra. Esta compilación de 8 entrevistas estuvo guardada por 18 años; para Liberman resultaba todo un reto contar la historia de alguien tan importante, más aun cuando entre charlas prolongadas y muchos cafés, se formó un vínculo especial: “A esa edad sabía que probablemente era la última entrevista que iba a dar, entonces se volcó completamente, él tenía una vida impresionante”.

La figura olvidada de Gilberto Bosques

Dos años antes que se conmemorara el centenario de la revolución mexicana, Lillian Liberman emprendió el camino de investigación, grabación y recopilación de información para realizar el presente documental, para la cual contó con el apoyo de la familia Bosques, en especial, la de Laura, hija del fallecido diplomático. Además, el proyecto fue acogido por las casas productoras Bambú Audiovisual y 1-2-3 Producciones. La composición de la pista sonora fue creada por nietos de refugiados españoles comprometidos con la causa.

“Gilberto Bosques provenía de un pueblito —cuenta Lillian—, gente de campo, pero muy letrada; era una familia nacionalista con un concepto de compromiso de hacer este país mejor.” Pocos hombres como Gilberto, un tipo muy coherente, muy ético extraordinariamente ético, algo que hace tanta falta, en estos tiempos. La figura del hombre que firmó la visa de cerca de 30,000 europeos que deseaban escapar de la opresión fascista desapareció con el tiempo; “el hecho de que fuera mexicano y que nadie lo conociera me indignó, y a veces la indignación es un buen combustible”, comenta Lillian Liberman al respecto.

Visa al paraíso marca un antes y un después en la vida de Liberman, el orgullo de haber cumplido un compromiso con ella misma y con Gilberto. El documental ha ganado el premio del público, el premio pantalla de cristal y dos menciones en la pasada edición del DOCSDF, “Yo nunca imaginé que iba a ser de ese tamaño, es un documental muy bien logrado, que enaltece a este país a través de una figura insólita”.
