...AND THEN NONE WILL LAUGH (…i després ningú no riurà)
By MANEL ESTEBAN, 16 min., 1968
This revolutionary film – considered representative of the social and cultural spirit of the moment – is emblematic of Spanish independent filmmaking. With ambitious aesthetics aspirations, this portrait of the bourgeois and Catholic society is opposed to violence and provocative images.
