Semprun without Semprun covers the complex and enigmatic existence of a man of whom we only have a blured and pixeled image.
Jorge Semprún, writer, scriptwriter and producer of the documentary “The two memories”, former Spanish Minister ofCulture or clandestine militant against Franco’s dictatorship. A life linked to the 20th Century.
Thanks to TVE’s exclusive footage, the documentary establishes a dialog between an aged Jorge and a young one. Semprún without Semprún is a non-lineal journey to a man hidden by the character, with a life like a novel and a clandestine and mysterious past. The documentary talks about the value of friendship, the autocritic and the search for coherence in life.
The documentary makes many questions about this figure of the second half of the 20th Century of Spain and Europe.
