1974. Spain. Directed by Pere Portabella. In 1974, on the night the militant anarchist Salvador Puig Antich was executed, five former political prisoners—Angel Abad, Jordi Cunill, Lola Ferreira, Narcís Julian, and Antonio Marín—gather in a farmhouse to prepare a meal and make a film discussing the problems and issues arising from long prison terms. Portabella uses simple cinematic conventions to explore his subject: "You can't understand liberation if you don't begin with yourself." In Spanish and Catalan, with English subtitles. 50 min.
