Antonio Sau Olite
60' / 1937 / Spain
A drama about the economic situation of the working-class and the start of the social revolution, Aurora de Esperanza opens with Juan, who has just returned from a vacation with his family to find himself unemployed. Searching futilely for work, Juan grows increasingly frustrated. His wife, Marta, agrees to a humiliating job to feed their children, and when Juan finds out he sends them all to the village while he wanders the city. Outraged by the working class's conformism, Juan makes a speech to the workers, while organizing a "hunger march" with the unemployed. They march to the city to protest to the authorities, and the social revolutionpasses through the village where his family is. Juan takes up arms with them as the revolution marches to the front lines, hoping for a better dawn.
