Francisco Franco is the most transcendental political figure in 20th century Spain to the point that his influence is still felt today. Thanks to the films preserved in the Filmoteca Española collections, this feature-length documentary portrays an intense, meticulous biographical portrait of the dictator, from his beginnings as a simple conservative military officer through his ascension as the maximum leader of the coup d’état that won the Civil War and held absolute power for almost 40 years. This story is presented for the very first time by way of colour images, treated with state of the art digital techniques in order to bring new life to the pictures and surprise viewers with a new viewing experience. Franco annihilated his adversaries, controlled his followers and managed to keep his regime intact despite changes in the global arena. “Generalissimo, Franco’s Life in Colour” is the definitive audiovisual portrait of a figure that is essential in order to understand Spain’s past and present.
