At the beginning of the Transition (la Transición—the Spanish transition to democracy following the death of dictator Francisco Franco in 1975), a small group of filmmakers took to the streets to record the opinions of politicians and citizens regarding the country that was about to be formed. Today, this documentary by Cecilia and José Juan Bartolomé is a milestone in the history of Spanish cinema, compiling testimonies that allow us to understand the plurality of a young society as it thinks about its past and considers how to build its future.

1979-1981; Spanish with English subtitles; 90 minutes; not rated
