Catalan Cinema’s Radical Years, 1968–1978 at the MoMA
This series traces 10 revolutionary years in the history of Catalan cinema: the period between 1968 and 1978, when the fate of Spain—and Catalonia’s place in it—lay in the balance. The death of General Francisco Franco on November 20, 1975, and the ascension of Juan Carlos I to the throne made possible the nation’s transition from brutal dictatorship to fragile democracy. The Catalan language, after nearly a half-century of censorship, could once again be expressed freely in the streets and in the arts.
