Documentary film made by the CNT/FAI showing the first days of the Spanish revolution in Barcelona. Spanish Audio with English subtitles.
Probably the first news film of the war, this report from the recently collectivized film industry documents the scene in Barcelona in the early days of the war/revolution following the defeat of the initial coup attempt. Footage of the aftermath of clashes (including the assault on the Atarazanas barracks) & jubilant crowds are a prominent sight in this report. In definitely captures the spirit of the early stages of the revolution.
