Spain's Reality
8 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

These films are general statements, not personal ones of the directors. You might call them reports. They show the reality 'behind the scenes' of a government that consisted of a political party, that was formed out of a vanishing dictatorship.

These short movies doesn't fight a government, these directors make a statement against Fascism showing the things the way they are, not like they are shown. Didn't the last days of the Government (trying to manipulate even international media, telling it was ETA already knowing that it was Al-Qaeda) showed clearly what kind of politics ruled for 8 years in Spain??? I like those movies because they are so realistic and maybe 'low budget'. But, isn't reality most of the time rather Low Budget? And although reality is sometimes boring fantasy will never be more exaggerated than reality. Look sharp and you'll find out.

Everyone who is interested in the actual situation in march 2004 in Spain and the way different directors show and comment on the government politics can take a look at these shorts and build up his own mind.
