“Memory of the forgotten” is a dance short film that pays tribute to the women that died in the Oblates prison convent in Tarragona due to the hard prison conditions and to the only woman shot in the city during Franco’s repression. This work wants to keep alive and document the memory of all these women through the witness of their lives and their stance in prison before being buried in a common grave in Tarragona’s cemetery.

This production, based on true facts, is an adaptation of the book, with the same title, written by Tecla Martorell, from Tarragona, and of the show, with the same title, created by Tarragona’s based dance company “La Im.Perfecta”. The audiovisual producer DansPXL joins history, literature, dance, and audiovisual for giving voice to our nearest past.
