A Spanish Tale

Raphael Bendahan

2008, 05:13 minutes, B&W, English


The story of a family and their friend Paco who fled Spain in the 1940's to come to Canada after the Civil War. With the fear of impending imprisonment under Franco's regime the family traveled to France and then to Canada. Told exclusively with family photos and a voice over of the daughter who recounts their harrowing escape and immigration to Montreal as a five year old, it captures the times and the panic of survivors under a regime bent on persecuting its Republican citizens who fought against Franco and his fascist army.
