C.M. Hardt in Death in El Valle

Death in El Valle

2009 NR

When Francisco Redondo died in the custody of Spain's Civil Guard, police claimed he was shot while trying to escape … but everyone else says he was murdered. C.M. Hardt, Redondo's granddaughter, sets out to learn the truth in this 2007 documentary. More than 50 years after Redondo's death, Hardt finds that the people of El Valle are still unwilling to discuss the uprising against the Franco regime that resulted in Redondo's demise.
