Synopsis

Miguel Núñez knew that the end was near. After a lifetime of pursuing utopias, he surrendered to his final battle, that of a dignified death, with the same revolutionary fervour with which he had confronted the Franco regime and Central American dictatorships.Here was a man who had spent 14 years in Franco’s jails, who was tortured and repeatedly risked his life for his dreams of universal social justice. Coherent, lucid and sarcastic until his last breath, Miguel also wanted to turn his death into an act of affirmation. After the so-called “Leganés case” in Madrid, Miguel chose to travel to Barcelona to die. The Final Escape is an intimate portrait of the dignified death of a dignified man, but above all it is a film about the life force of an entire generation who risked their necks and yet who we are now allowing to be forgotten. The film addresses issues such as intergenerational legacy, the meaning of historical memory and the difficult relationship between political struggle and family life, themes that director Albert Solé already focused on in his previous work Bucharest, Memory Lost, winner of the Goya for Best Documentary in 2009. Accompanying us on this journey are historical characters such as Marcos Ana, Evo Morales, Agustín Ibarrola, Pasqual Maragall and Ernesto Cardenal.

Director: Albert Solé.

 

Sinopsis

Miguel Núñez sabía que el que el final estaba cerca. Después de toda una vida persiguiendo utopías, se entregó a su último combate, el de la muerte digna, con el mismo fervor revolucionario con el que se enfrentó al franquismo y a las dictaduras centroamericanas. Esta es la historia de un “héroe de nuestro tiempo” como lo definió Manuel Vázquez Montalbán. Un hombre que estuvo 14 años en las cárceles de Franco, fue condenado a muerte, torturado y se jugó la vida en reiteradas ocasiones por sus sueños universales de justicia social. Miguel fue coherente, lúcido y sarcástico hasta el último suspiro.

Dirigido por Albert Solé.
