España en dos trincheras: la Guerra Civil en Color, presented at Valladolid

Veo Televisión and Minoria Absoluta in collaboration with DMAX present España en dos trincheras, la Guerra Civil en color, a feature-length documentary in which, for the first time in Spain, original archive material from the Spanish Civil War has been digitalised to 4K and coloured to create a unique work that shows the Civil War as never seen before: in colour.

A team of over 50 people has worked for a year and a half, under the direction of Francesc Ecribano and Luis Carrizo to produce an audiovisual work that relates, in an objective manner, one of the darkest periods of contemporary Spanish history.

The film was made possible by a laborious process of selection, digitalisation and colourising of the more than 450 films surviving from the Spanish Civil War.

The feature-length documentary is to be screened at the Valladolid International Film Festival – Seminci.
