The Burnt City

Antoni Ribas’s 1976 La ciutat cremada, a film shot in the Catalan language the year after Franco’s death, represented a big step forward for regional Spanish cinema. Depicting the rise of Catalan nationalism from the viewpoint of a left-wing militant, the film covers events from the loss of Cuba in 1898 to the anarchist uprising of 1909. With Angela Molina. (JR)
