Boléro Paprika

short film – 20’53 – 2017


Set in France in the 50s, Diego, the son of exiled Spanish Republicans, witnesses a police raid targeting his father and his grandfather, among the last opponents of Franco’s regime. Plunged in his recollections of a still burning history, Diego will save the memories of those who were able to resist totalitarianism.
