El año del descubrimiento The Year Of The Discovery

About the film

In 1992 – 500 years after the beginning of Spain’s global empire with the discovery of America – Spain proudly presented itself to the international community as a modern, developed, dynamic country through the Olympic Games in Barcelona and the Expo in Seville. But for filmmaker Luis López Carrasco (1981, Murcia), 1992 was also the year in which the regional parliament building in Cartagena was razed during furious protests against the threatened closure of various local industries.

“A prodigy: the artifact, not only a documentary, most surprising and even essential that Spanish cinematography has produced in a long time; in at least 20 years.”
