Additional Information

Raza (Spain, 1941) directed by José Luis Sáenz de Heredia. Adapted from a novel by Francisco Franco (writing under a pseudonym) and produced with the support of the state apparatus without acknowledging Franco's authorship, this film illustrates the experiences of a Galician family whose divided loyalties are finally aligned with the Nationalists as Franco rises to power. Adapted after 1945 for a new release with Fascist elements replaced by anti-communist ones, this original version was long thought lost, but can now be appreciated as the ultimate ideological appeal by the new government to Nationalist sentiment.
