Cartas a María

Loading...
As a result of his father's Alzheimer's disease, Maite decides to recover the unknown and silenced story of his grandfather Pedro. Pedro was a Republican exiled, one of many Spaniards who in 1939 had to go into exile in France, leaving behind his wife Maria and their two sons. In order to survive the harsh living conditions he endured during his captivity in some refugee camps in the South of France, he had to work for the French government in the middle of an arms race and even for the Nazi army. Through archive footage, words, memories, silence and, especially, 46 letters that Pedro wrote to María from exile, Maite will discover and imagine this unique and epic family story, testimony of a part of History. --

Caveman Cold Case [electronic resource]

A tomb of 49,000 year-old Neanderthal bones discovered in the caves of El Sidrón in Northern Spain led to a double mystery: How did this group of individuals die? And, could the fate of this group help explain Neanderthal extinction? Some bones have deep cuts, long bones are cracked and skulls crushed-distinct signs of cannibalism. Was it a result of ritual or hunger? Neanderthal experts are adamant that they were not bloodthirsty brutes. Will this investigation challenge their views? What happened here will take us from El Sidron to the other end of the Iberian Peninsula where scientists are searching for underwater sites off Gibraltar. Scientists working here had theories-but no proof-for why Neanderthals went extinct. El Sidron may change this.
