Film show at the Media Library: 80th anniversary of the end of the Spanish Civil War
On April 1, 1939, General Francisco Franco signed the last part of the war:
"Today, captive and disarmed the Red Army, national troops have reached their last military objectives. The war is over."
Thus begins a long dictatorship, the perpetuation of the rupture of the country and an economic and cultural backwardness that led to the emigration of more than one million Spaniards and that can be seen in the films we have selected. Half of the sample are documentaries centered, most of them, on the development of the warlike conflict.
In the fiction section a series of films , mainly Spanish, shot in different historical periods have been selected . From the civil war itself and the hard postwar period with antagonistic titles such as Sierra de Teruel and the Rojo y negro falangist , to the closest visions of the conflict, such as Pajaros de papel by Emilio Aragón.
We hope that the sample is to your liking.
We hope that thesample will be of your pleasure and we are waiting for you in the Media Library from April 1 to April 12.
