Informe generale sobre algunas cuestiones de interés para una proyección pública (General Report on Some Interesting Facts for a Public Showing). 1976. Spain. Directed by Pere Portabella. Clandestinely shot documentary footage of demonstrations in major cities is interweaved with interviews and discussions between Spanish politicians, union activists, and representatives (many of whom would become key figures in post-1978-constitution Spain). This film documents the creative process by which a constitution and a country come into being—through a society asking itself: How could Spain rid itself of its Francoist institutions and become a democratic, socialist country that respects the identities of its component nationalities? In Spanish, Catalan, and Euskera; English subtitles. 173 min.
