The story of the man who conducted “witch-hunts” in search of Communist sympathizers between 1950 and 1956. North American Senator McCarthy became popular on TV and his dogmatic patriotism went crazy. The parallelisms with Donald Trump are more than evident.

19th of May, 1939. Franco’s army celebrates the triumph with a spectacular cavalcade in the center of Madrid. Meanwhile, Spanish republicans go into exile. For the first time in history we can see Spanish Civil War as we have never seen it before: in color.
