Vers Madrid - The Burning Bright! + Q&A

7 April 2013

Sylvain George's Vers Madrid - The Burning Bright! documents the origins of the Occupy movement with an experimental newsreel, recording the grassroots protest movement that evolved in Madrid in 2011.

"This film presents views, scenes and moments of the class struggle in Madrid. The 'Movimiento 15-M' is the first major 'movement' in the beginning of the 21st century: a deep movement, trans-border and trans-historical which reactivates and works ideas and concepts that were long thought to be forgotten: demos, logos, revolution..."  - Sylvain George

"Vers Madrid will stand as one of the strongest documents of 15-M, a strong, political statement from a committed filmmaker" - Desist Film

Followed by a Q&A with director Sylvain George, hosted by Kieron Corless, Deputy Editor of Sight and Sound.
