LAS CUATRO ESQUINAS Y MADRID
The history of punk in Spain can only be told as it emerged: taking what we can from the rubbish (in this case from Youtube and mass culture) in an exhaustive tour of communities (Andalusia too, of course) which shakes us up, and turn us around, leaving us feeling batteries thanks to the powerful guitars and lyrics. A story that Kikol Grau has built around a satire in which Poltergeist or Star Wars serve as a “film voodoo” to narrate the story of this other great dump that gave rise to punk: Franco’s regime, the same one that the Spanish transition swept under the carpet
Direction: Kikol Grau
Sound: Amanda Villavieja
Grau has a long experience in television, creating various alternative cultural programs, as well as the online TV channel "Si te he visto no te aguanto TV". He works for the TVE show Metropolis, and for the distribution company Hamaca. His first film, Objetivo Gadafi, is followed by the musical films (selected in the SEFF) Las más macabras de las vidas (about Eskorbuto, first prize in the Dock of the Bay Festival), Inadaptados (about Cicatriz) and No somos nada (about La Polla Records). His most recent creations prior to this one, Las cuatro esquinas y Madrid, La transacción, un recorrido audiovisual por la Transición, and Histeria de España, a collective film that he coordinated, have also been in Seville.
