Sylvain George

They called themselves indignados – the indignant. From 15th May 2011 onwards, people of all classes and ages came to the central squares of Madrid to protest against the power of the banks, the crisis management of the government and corruption. Director Sylvain George took his camera to the epicentre of the protest movement, to the Plaza Puerta del Sol in Madrid. He documents the daily routines: speeches, group discussions, cabaret and street fights. George's style is rough, direct and at the same time poetic, whilst leaving no-one in any doubt about whose side he's on.
