Storyline

The self-management experience of the workers of the Numax factory in Barcelona (Spain), at the end of the seventies, was included in a documentary that they themselves decided to entrust to the filmmaker Joaquim Jordà at the moment when the factory were about to close. It was titled "Numax presents..." (1980). Those images, recovered, together with the situation in which those same workers are so many years later, lead us to reflect on the last and intense decades that have been lived in Spain, to discover the fragility of youth ideals and offer a history of the political transition from dictatorship to democracy.

This documentary takes on another documentary by the same director. Jordà reunites a bunch of factory workers 20 years later or so -hence the title.

In Barcelona in the late seventies, a factory was about to close, the managers couldn't manage the working class people so they decided to shut doors. The rebellious workers gave it a try and tried to run the company by themselves for two years. This is documented in the previous documentary 'Numax presenta..'.

In the new one, Jordà tracks those idealistic, anarchist, maybe anarchic people and investigates what became of them.

I haven't seen the original, so I don't care about these people reunion -hugs and kisses infest the film- although some footage from the previous film is included. What's left for me is the mystery force that make these people thrive whatever they do.

It's about the people not as a union but as individuals. The motto 'Every man is an island' comes to mind.

Watch out for the bank robbers segment for thrills and chills.
