Synopsis:

A thriller ripped from the headlines of febrile political times. Based on a series of tragic events that became known as the Massacre of Atocha, this key work of Spanish oppositional cinema dramatizes a crucial moment in the country’s transition from dictatorship to democracy. In January of 1977, just two years after Franco’s death, right-wing extremists stormed the offices of a group of progressive employment lawyers with links to the Spanish communist party, killing 5 people and leaving 4 more severely injured. The film itself was made just two years after the events it depicts.

Part of the retrospective States of Danger and Deceit: European Thrillers in the 1970s (presented by HOME / supported by the BFI). The full list of titles in the retrospective at LIFF 2017 is as follows: The Day of the Jackal, The Deputy, Don't Torture a Duckling, The Flight, Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion, The Lost Honour of Katharina Blum, The Man on the Roof, The Mattei Affair, Seven Days in January, State of Siege, Z.
