Pere Portabella: General Report on Spain

Synopsis

Today in Spain, neoliberalist capitalism has laid waste to the middle class, unemployment is skyrocketing, the Left is a factious mess that the Right plays with ease, trust in democracy is at a new low. Is it necessary to look for other forms of participatory processes?

Our take

If the first General Report was a rumination on the transition from an oppressive regime to a democratic state, in this implacable, necessary sequel Portabella dissects—40 years later—the brutal crisis devouring Europe today. These are turbulent times for Spain, and this film is essential viewing.
