la cosecha de las Revueltas

Richard Hamon. 2006. France. s Spanish. 52’

In spite of an uprising during the second Republic, the promised agrarian reform never took place and now, seventy years after Franco's coup d'etat, andalusian farmers are still subject to the arbitrariness of the major landowners. But after Franco's death, some farmers organised themselves, conquered land under the control of the big landowners, founded agricultural municipalities and created co-operatives. In Marinaleda, according to slogans painted on the walls, the egalitarian utopia is under way.
