on CERTAIN MATTERS of interest
for a public SCREENING
This film constitutes the synthesis of Portabella's openly political clandestine films and his surroundings. Shot in the months after the death of General Franco, it is a "documentary" film shot with the techniques of a fiction film. A coherent link in a filmography intended to explore the limits of filming representation, Informe General is about the future political representation in the Spanish transition, with a clear democratic vocation contradicted by its virtual invisibility during thirty years. The speakers are concerned with one sole question: How do you go from a dictatorship to a democracy?
