Clandestí: Invisible Catalan Cinema Under Franco

Clandestí: Invisible Catalan Cinema Under Franco focuses on a generation of independent filmmakers whose innate unwillingness to conform with facist Franco’s regime forced them to produce, distribute, and exhibit radical films in Catalonia, with the furtive hope of sending them into the rest of Spain. Connected with workers’ movements and political parties, these authors put their images in the service of anti-Franco causes, and even managed to organize a distribution network through recreation centers, private homes, cinema clubs, universities, social and cultural associations, and even parochial schools.”

25 – 30 November at the BFI, London

  1. Hello, i’m programming social issues in a civic center in Madrid, and for me would be a pleasure to project this program if it’s out of rights licences.

    Looking forward to your answer.

    Thanks a lot

    Hola Marta,

    Acabo de echarle un vistazo a la página de La Tabacalera, tenéis cosas muy interesantes!

    Si quieres programar las películas del ciclo sobre cine catalán, tendrías que ponerte en contacto con los organizadores. Prueba a escribir al colectivo Pragda:

    Un saludo,
