|Screenplay:||Ángel Casas y Francesc Bellmunt|
90' / 1976 / Spain
Francesc Bellmunt and Ángel Casas (screenwriter and musical journalist) approach the nova cançó at a time when this form of musical expression had already reached a great popularity. Together with performances and interviews with singer-songwriters like Ramon Muntaner, Lluis Llach, María del Mar Bonet y Raimon, the film shows the opinions of key characters in the Catalonian culture, such as the painter Joan Miró, the polititian Jordi Pujol and the journalist and writer Manuel Vázquez Montalbán amongst others. In its premiere in June 1976 within the Congrés de Cultura Catalana, the film managed to get across to the audience a united collective feeling which was partly due to the fact that this musical style had reached its climax.
