Una pasión singular ( Visual )

With an exceptional production value, this controversial film shows the brutal reality that several families had to deal with many years ago. Blas Infante, a brave man who tried fighting for other people's rights towards a better life, sacrificed his own freedom and his own life. August 1936, in the darkness, the overcrowding, the terrible days of these fratricidal struggles, the thwarted lives and hopes, in the midst of all these shadows, in conceptual counterpoint, the brilliance of a series of scenes of meticulous expressiveness appears, free from the slavery imposed by time and space and also free from the brutal separation between reality and the imaginary. This is an overall view not just of Blas Infante but also of his time and everything he dedicated his life to!
