Premier americana

The latest film by Pere Portabella deals with the political, financial, social, and cultural dimensions of the current crisis in the country’s parliamentary democracy and social movements emerged after 15-M.

With a dandy-like detachment and the sensible severity of those who dive on a mission to depict a world that seems to be constantly changing, Pere Portabella captures free, uncompromised images of municipal affairs that could have been tempered with by an enchanted contemplation. Fervent demonstrations at Madrid’s Puerta del Sol, assemblies, camps, marches of Catalonian independence supporters, rallies where Podemos speaks its first words to the world: these are all portraits of an everyday universe that acquires strange, almost extraterrestrial features when seen from a distance. General Report II doesn’t seem to pick a side, except for the one of a complete lack of certainties. The formal elegance of the film is capable of containing the images in a distant place whose essential characteristic is a question mark. DO
