Spain puts SCW documentaries online

November 23, 2011

The Spanish daily Público reports:  Spain’s Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts has uploaded to the Ministry of Culture’s youtube channel a selection of 93 film documents from its historical archive and from the Spanish Civil War holdings of Spain’s Filmoteca.  Many of the Civil War documentaries were included on a wonderful DVD collection titled “La guerra filmada.”

Of particular interest is the short newsreel “Norteamérica en España,” titled in English “Congressmen in Spain.”

The footage can be browsed and viewed here.
