Bucarest, la mem˛ria perduda (Bucharest, lost memory)

Bucarest, la memòria perduda is a documentary film that charts the personal search of Albert, born in Romania, to find his roots, in the framework of a twofold exile. His father, politician Jordi Solé Tura, former Catalan Government minister and one of the seven Fathers of the Spanish Constitution, who was forced to leave Spain due to his anti-Francoist militancy in the 1960s, has now embarked on a new inner exile, with no possible return-the loss of memory. This documentary sets out to salvage memories of atypical lives, bringing together historical figures and little known episodes of the Cold War, the struggle against Francoism in the 1960s and 1970s, and, finally, the transition to democracy. Albert travels from one exile to another in an attempt to recompose the memory of his family and the memory of a country-his own memory.
