Somewhere on the high plains of La Mancha in Spain resides a village that carries the name of its creator, Francisco Franco. Llanos del Caudillo is one of over 300 settlement villages built during the dictatorship of General Franco. Franco’s Settlers portraits this unordinary small town as if looking through a magnifying glass. The film is a contemporary evaluation of the figure of the dictator Franco, an attempt to dissect recent Spanish history and to review how Spaniards deal with the heritage of their past.
"Rarely a movie has been so much in sync with its times.
With Franco's Settlers Post and Palacios put the finger on the sore spot."
Rafael Poch (La Vanguardia)
"'Spain is a country, which hasn't talked about its recent past', says Emilio Silva.
Franco's Settlers could correct this situation once movie theaters start showing it." Enrique Müller (El País)
