Bob Flynn (The Times) on Franco's Settlers

"Franco's Settlers" is a splendid, beautifully constructed and important film about a vital subject matter, one of the best on the previously unspoken, or hidden, modern history of Spain.

I've researched Spain’s post Civil War period myself but Franco's settlements were new to me, as were many stories in the film, and this appalling experiment in social engineering came as a shock. Yet the film is well balanced and, most importantly, allows all sides speak for themselves.

The archive footage, much of which not seen for decades, and the numerous contemporary interviews only confirms how heavily Franco’s shadow still hangs over Spain.

This fine and disturbing documentary needs to be seen worldwide, but especially in Spain.
