"In 1937, Dutch filmmaker Joris Ivens, together with Ernest Hemingway, traveled to Spain to make a film supporting the democratic Republican Government against the fascist party revolt led by Generalissimo Francisco Franco, the events which would open the way to the Second World War. The Ivens film, titled El Tierra Español, is considered a cinematic masterpiece, the first consciously propaganda documentary, attempting to get America to give food and munitions to the beleaguered partisans fighting for their democratic survival.Digging the Spanish Earth explores the original masterpiece.
