Land And Freedom

Dir: Ken Loach / UK, Spain, Germany, Italy, France / 109 mins 

5_land-and-freedom_2 Synospsis : 1936. David, an unemployed young man, leaves Liverpool
to fight against Fascism in the early days of the Spanish Civil War. He joins an international section of the Republican Militia on the Aragon front and together with his comrades he experiences the passions of war. On returning to Barcelona he finds himself torn between loyalty to the Communist Party and his new found love, Blanca. The resolution of this conflict and David’s return to his comrades at the front may seem tragic but his dream of revolutionary change remains unaltered. David’s story is revealed only after his death, sixty years later, in letters discovered by his granddaughter.
