The idea of Catalan self-determination has been building for the past decade, culminating in the independence referendum of 2017. Capturing the weeks leading up to the referendum date of October 1, beginning with its approval by the Catalan parliament on September 6, Alexandre Chartrand’s documentary makes no claim for dispassionate objectivity. It does, however, capture the resolute focus, energy and, above all, joy of the campaign, maintained in the face of arrests and imposed pay freezes. And who could find nothing to celebrate in seeing a small nation assert itself so positively! DOM
