Spanish documentary makers Clemente Bernad and Carolina Martínez face up to two years in prison and a more than $13,000 fine for having filmed images in the crypt at the Monument for the Fallen in Pamplona, where a mass is celebrated every month in memory of Francoists, El País reports. Memory organizations such as the Association for the Recovery of Historical Memory, the winner of the ALBA/Puffin Prize, have launched a campaign in support of Bernad and Martínez.
