Numax Presenta

Loading...
" ... Numax presenta-- covers an arresting and media-diverting incident in Spain: the almost revolutionary decision of the workers at the Numax appliance factory to resist forced closure of that business -- and its concomitant layo[ffs] -- in 1977, by "taking over" the factory themselves. That decision lasted until 1979, when the plant closed permanently. Almost three decades passed, and in the mid-2000s, Jordà returned with his cameras to examine what had transpired in the lives of the workers during the twenty-five year interim. The result is the documentary Veinte Anos No Es Nada. This film begins with the closing "party" sequence of Numax presenta-- and moves forward in time to tell the stories of many of the former Numax employees. What emerges over the course of the[se] film[s] [...]

Gaudí

Loading...
The film Gaudí stems from the need to offer the viewer an "official" version of the story of the Catalan architect, through archive images and documents from the period. After much research, we came to the conclusion that it was virtually impossible to come up with a documentary of that sort because of the lack of historical information. At this point, we decided to make up the background information needed for the reconstruction of a biographical portrait. Our conjectural results are based, at all times, on real events or, at least, on feasible events. It is not simply a matter of describing the events and important dates of Gaudí's life and career, but of getting a feel for the period through unearthed images found among the rubble after the Spanish Civil War. --
