The second part of the documentary Después de…, by Cecilia and José Juan Bartolomé, features politicians, professionals, and citizens from all walks of life as they express their opinions of the changes that have befallen Spain during the years of the country’s transition to democracy following the death of Francisco Franco. The outspokenness of some of these testimonies and the sense of tension that pervades the film caused its release to be held up until late 1983. Después de… places its directors in the vanguard of social documentarians who continue to play a critical role in Spanish cinema.
1979-1981; Spanish with English subtitles; 90 minutes; not rated
