Production: Apellaniz y de sosa
San Sebastian, 1978. Factory workers meet to discuss a strike that never comes to term. Disappointed, the most radical decide to leave the factory and join a libertarian commune in the mountains of Navarra.
In Anekumen I explore one of the most characteristic reactions to political disappointment: the search for a reduced and isolated model of society in which to put political ideals into practice, delving into the convoluted contradictions that this path entails.
