WHAT IS LA FATARELLA, 1938
La Fatarella, 1938 is a short film centred in the Spanish Civil War, specifically in the Battle of the Ebro (Batalla del Ebro). The film tells a short, but dramatic and encouraging story, that surely will move you. In the town called La Fatarella, there was an advanced for the soldiers of «la lleva del biberó».
In the story there is a contraposition between youth and innocence by one side, and insight by the other one. That offers a realistic and cruel view of War.
Pau Bertomeu (DELTA PRODUCCIONS, audiovisual production company) developed the idea of the film after reading the «The last cigarret» story, by Joan Ferré Verge. The author wrote the story through his uncle Leonardo facts. He was an excombatant of «la lleva del biberó», so he lived the facts personally.
La Fatarella, 1938 also reflects the illusion of a profesional team. They have given all their talent and love to this project, without asking any reward. They have just created this film for all of you.
The film also features the holding of ‘Associació Lo Riu’, association for the study of archaeological and historic Terres de l”Ebre, ‘Memoria Histórico-Militar 1938’ Batalla de l”Ebre museum, in Faió (Saragossa) or the historic recreation group ‘Ejercito del Ebro’, and others.
In April 1938, two years after the beginning of the War, were called up to files the youths born between 1920 and 1921.
The Noi character is upset and sad. He doesn”t understand the situation that he”s living. He puts some clothes, a bottle, and a cup inside his bag. His mother is backed to the doorframe. She has got a tissue in her hands and she looks at him crying. Suddenly, and with an uncomfortable way, they embrace each other. Now, she remains single and dislocated.
After a long journey, the Noi realizes that the veteran forward is a cherished value.
