The anti-Franco filmmakers Helena Lumbreras and Mariano Lisa analyse the power of the State media and call for the production of clandestine publications. This essay film is structured in three large segments edited with a vertiginous montage that associates press clippings, photographs and newspaper headlines. Lumbreras and Lisa show images of the Vietnam War, condemn American and European imperialismand strongly ask for a new and free press.
