Pere Portabella, General Report on Some Interesting Questions for a Public Screening (Informe general sobre algunas cuestiones de interés para una proyección pública), ES 1976, 154 min, OV (Spanish, Catalan, Basque) with English subs

Director: Pere Portabella, script: Pere Portabella, Carles Santos, Octavia Pellisa, camera: Manel Esteban, music: Carles Santos, sound: Alberto Escobedo, Pere Joan Ventura, Javier Celayuandi, production: Films 59

With an introduction by Dominik Kamalzadeh (film critic, publicist, Vienna)

Informe general sobre algunas cuestiones de interés para una proyección pública (General Report on Some Interesting Questions for a Public Screening) is a fundamental film for understanding the political and social processes that formed part of the passage from dictatorship to democracy in Spain. With the intention, as indicated in the title, of “informing” for public purposes, Pere Portabella explored possible strategies for achieving rule of law. To do so he put himself inside the pre-democratic spirit shared by the agents that conceived of and gave shape to Spain’s transition to democracy, which included the filmmaker himself, through his active participation in the Catalan political party PSUC. He did not make a documentary following the techniques and strategies typical of this genre; instead, he made a “fiction document.” He challenges the conventions of the medium by creating a montage, in which he mixes material he himself had filmed with images of anti-Franco demonstrations, fragments of other Spanish cinema works, the reconstruction of historical events, etc. Of particular significance within the dense fabric that makes up the film is, on the one hand, the filming of key places in the history of Francoism, such as Palacio del Pardo or the abandoned Parlament de Catalunya and, on the other hand, a series of clandestine interviews with key figures in this historical period, such as Felipe González and Santiago Carrillo, along with other representatives of political and labour organizations, many of which were still illegal at the time. (Lola Hinojosa)
This film constitutes the synthesis of Portabella’s openly political clandestine films and his surroundings. Shot in the months after the death of General Franco, it is a “documentary” film shot with the techniques of a fiction film. A coherent link in a filmography intended to explore the limits of filming representation, Informe General is about the future political representation in the Spanish transition, with a clear democratic vocation contradicted by its virtual invisibility during thirty years. Key political figures like former Spanish president Felipe Gonzalez or communist party leader Santiago Carrillo take part in some of the discussions present in the film. The speakers are concerned with one sole question: How do you go from a dictatorship to a democracy? (producer‘s note)
