Death of Antonio Sánchez Lomas, The
In the southern Spanish village of Frigiliana, time has not healed the wounds from the Franco era. Even now the murder of a villager in 1952 divides the community.
A horrific event during the Franco era in a southern Spanish village remains a taboo subject that no one talks about. Beneath the apparent village harmony, there is an undercurrent of lethargic pain, personal drama, betrayal and hidden political conflicts. These all stem from the cruelties carried out by Franco's Guardia Civil. Filmmakers Ramón and Salvador Gieling confront the inhabitants with these hidden secrets. Only the ones who confront the bloody past can live in peace with the future.
