[Disc 1] Numax presenta-- (102 min.)
[disc 2] Veinte años no es nada (112 min.).
"... Numax presenta-- covers an arresting and media-diverting incident in Spain: the almost revolutionary decision of the workers at the Numax appliance factory to resist forced closure of that business -- and its concomitant layo[ffs] -- in 1977, by "taking over" the factory themselves. That decision lasted until 1979, when the plant closed permanently. Almost three decades passed, and in the mid-2000s, Jordà returned with his cameras to examine what had transpired in the lives of the workers during the twenty-five year interim. The result is the documentary Veinte Anos No Es Nada. This film begins with the closing "party" sequence of Numax presenta-- and moves forward in time to tell the stories of many of the former Numax employees. What emerges over the course of the[se] film[s] is a picture of the shifting sociological currents in Spain (particularly those of industrial reconversion) during the [70s], '80s, '90s and 2000s, as mirrored, microcosmically, in the lives of the individual subjects."--Nathan Southern, on Blockbuster website.
