On 20 November 1975, Francisco Franco finally dies - now, finally, Spain can slowly turn itself into a democracy. Thus begins the period called transición, which ends for some on 6 December 1978 with the ratification of the Spanish Constitution; for others with the election victory of the Spanish Socialist Workers’ Party in 1982, after an attempted Fascist coup the year before.
Informe general sobre unas cuestiones de interés para una proyección pública covers the run-up to the nation’s first post-Franco free elections, on 15 June 1977 - an event at once very real, if also somewhat theatrical, which made Portabella tackle the project as if it were a piece of fiction. He certainly wasn’t a disinterested third party: Portabella himself was up for election, and would take part in drawing up the ’78 Constitution.
