MORIR EN MADRID
On the eve of the Second World War, a fascist putsch gave rise to a totalitarian battle of ideologies in Spain. With archive images that the director Rossif surreptitiously obtained from the Franco regime’s censors, MORIR EN MADRID is a comprehensive chronicle of one of the 20th century’s greatest tragedies.
