The Year of the Discovery

SPAIN / 2020 / 200 min
Director: Luis López Carrasco


Spain, 1992, 500 years after the discovery of the New World. Behind the Olympics and the Expo, labor protests are escalating. Combining into split-screen compositions vivid archival footage, and workers’ stories unfolding in a smoky bar, the film re-examines the national mythology of progress.
