As a painter in the court of King Carlos IV of Spain, Goya has attained wealth and reputation. He believes in king and church, but he is also a Spaniard who dearly loves his people - a contradiction that presents a deep dilemma.

Based on Lion Feuchtwanger's novel, GOYA is one of only 10 East German films originally shot in 70mm. This release is the director's cut and shows the influence of great filmmakers from Bunuel and Saura, to Eisenstein.

GOYA was nominated for the Golden Prize at the 1971 Moscow International Film Festival.
