Spain: Facing Uncertainty

Spain’s transition from dictatorship to democracy, following the death of Franco, amazed the world. Today, Spain amazes for the wrong reasons. Billions wasted in public works. Astronomical unemployment rates, peaking at 58.5% youth unemployment. A royal princess accused of tax fraud and over 600 politicians and public officials implicated in corruption cases. Meanwhile, the massive Catalan pro-independence movement questions the very essence of the state. Combining carefully selected archive, interviews with key players and analysis by well-connected observers and insiders, this film gives fresh insight into the state of mind of a country in transition towards a more profound democracy.
