General Report 2: the New Abduction of Europe [2016]

This isn’t so much a documentary as a curation of a series of discussions between various kinds of big thinkers on issues of interest to contemporary Spain. There’s a huge amount of interesting thought expressed in an intelligent way by intelligent people covering everything: art, museums, education, the environment, science research funding, social structures, economics. It really is a general report – but it does absolutely nothing to help the audience understand any of the content displayed. There were large chunks of the film that were completely beyond my comprehension because I don’t know enough about Spain to fill in the blanks. I wondered if someone who knew a bit more than me might have then found the rest of it a bit tediously obvious.
