“The No-Do Years” on DVD


“That the NO-DO was created as an instrument for the official propaganda of the Regime is unquestionable, but, at the same time, it also responded to its motto of “The whole world within the reach of all Spaniards”. This impressive audiovisual legacy, which spans almost 40 years, collected the great events of Spanish society and showed the small anecdotes of daily life in which people could feel represented. The thousands of preserved film rolls contain the essence of a country, beyond its original political intentions, and have become the heritage of all Spaniards.”
