REBELS • 2019

DIRECTOR: Damià Puig Augé

COUNTRY: Spain

RUNTIME: '100

 

SYNOPSIS: There is a dissident and combative Catalunya, that lives on and resists under the layer of official debate. A Catalunya where — from the time of the fallacy of Transition— disobedience, dissidence and self organisation in the face of poverty have been, and are, palpable, as are the repressive methods to eradicate them. REBELS sets out, as a feature length documentary, to get to the bottom of this story and to explore what we find, with a zoom lens focussed on the last four decades. We start off in 1974 with the assassination of Salvador Puig Antich and we emerge – focussing mainly on the period since the “crisis” of 2008 – in the struggles of here and now, analysing the political, social, economic and cultural context.
In order to demonstrate the fundamental principal of action-reaction
in both directions: social movements vs the system and the system vs
social movements, we establish links between the past and present, in a Catalunya which does not give up, which creates alternatives, which resists.
A place of rebels which beats, obstinate, beneath the official storyline.
