In 2016, a search for information began in Filmoteca Española for a research projection on the documentary film Rocío, which had been censored in the early 1980s. Among the materials deposited in its warehouses were 260 rolls of 16 mm photo negatives. They were the leftovers of the editing, footage that was left out of the final version. The forgotten images of a banned film come to life on the screen after forty years in Descartes.

About the film series: Instituto Cervantes presents Arrebato en celuloide: Flashes of light and other divergences in Spanish cinema, a new film program that shows a selection of works by authors who use the super-8 analog format for their creations. This series is based on the Spanish film program Mostra Internacional de Cinema Periférico de A Coruña. The director of the Galician festival, Ángel Rueda, has selected eight short films that speak to the cinematographic experience founded as an aesthetic precedent by Iván Zulueta.
