Brilliant
15 June 2002 | by (Cwmtawe (Swansea Valley) Cymru) – See all my reviews

A community slaughtered because Fascists wanted to intimidate and destroy community solidarity. The film was filmed up the valley from my home, - in Cwmgiedd by Ystradgynlais, with local people, many of whom had had a relative in the International Brigades in Espana, forming the cast. Very Moving!
