The Year of the Discovery Poster

The Year of the Discovery

3h 20m
In 1992 – 500 years after the beginning of Spain's global empire with the discovery of America – Spain proudly presented itself to the international community as a modern, developed, dynamic country through the Olympic Games in Barcelona and the Expo in Seville. But for filmmaker Luis López Carrasco (1981, Murcia), 1992 was also the year in which the regional parliament building in Cartagena was razed during furious protests against the threatened closure of various local industries. El año del descubrimiento revives this almost forgotten history in a typical Spanish bar in Cartagena, where different generations come together to drink, eat, smoke and talk. Stories from witnesses, demonstrators and strikers from back then and discussions among younger café visitors on themes such as class consciousness, the economic crisis and the role of unions percolate to the surface amidst talk of other life issues.

[L'Alternativa] The chronicle of the process of destruction of the economic base of an entire country. The proposal goes through talking about the present to take us to the past. The screen divided into two images connects conversations, establishes dialogues, explains what we are listening to. This image dialog does not always work. But when it does, it builds a narrative of remarkable richness.

It gives you an old patina that you think are images from 1992, but no, they are from the present. One more look at the industrial crisis and the effects of relocation at this time where Cartagoyuyu is already Cartagena, a patrimonial and cruise ship city.
