Taking as their starting point ‘The first time I heard about Franco', six young directors produce a piece about individual memory and personal remembering. The sum of their visions composes a plural body of reflection on our history, and a review of the legacy and the continuance, manifest or under the surface, of the figure of Francisco Franco. It takes a look at the present in a search for keys to the past and an understanding of a world in which the figure of the dictator is unfortunately still relevant. This filmic exercise to combat forgetting is an attempt to answer the eternal questions: who are we, and why are we what we are?
All screenings will be in the original version with Catalan subtitles and film format (16/35 mm) unless indicated otherwise. The CCCB reserves the right to modify the programme for reasons of force majeure.
