El perro negro – Stories From the Spanish Civil War

Directed by Péter Forgács

A poetic collage of amateur films and testimonies of those who took part in the Spanish Civil War, this personal documentary gives an impression of the mood and time in which this class war took place. The films and stories of Joan Salvans Piero and Ernesto Diaz Noriega lead us through Spain in the thirties and forties of the last century. Ernesto, a middle class student from Madrid, survived the war. Joan, a Catalan industrialist, was killed six days after its outbreak.
