Prominent Spaniards read victims’ testimonies

June 16, 2010

Just uploaded to YouTube: “Contra la impunidad” (Against Impunity), a nine-minute video put together by Pedro Almodóvar’s production company, in which a number of well-known Spanish actors and intellectuals (including Pilar and Javier Bardem, Juan Diego, and Almodóvar himself) read first-person narratives of victims of Nationalist and Francoist repression. The video emphasizes that these individuals were killed without a proper trial, and that their families are still seeking justice. See the video here (in Spanish, no subtitles). Press coverage here.
