Una dedicatoria a lo bestia, a 2019 documentary by Nucbeade (the collective formed by artists QuielaNuc and Andrea Beade), focuses on a variety of objects found at the headquarters in San Fernando de Henares of the Patronato de Protección a la Mujer. This internment center for young women ages 13 to 21 was in operation from 1944 to 1985. The filmmakers’ use of documentary as an archaeological exercise, uncovering evidence of the daily reality experienced at the site, offers valuable insights into an uncomfortable and little-known part of recent Spanish history, and raises ongoing questions. Can evidence of resistance and rebellion be found in a space that was constructed for the repression of female sexuality? What memories are activated by these relics, and how can they be integrated into the historical record of the Franco regime and Spain’s transition to democracy?
2019; Spanish with English subtitles; 10 minutes; not rated.
