In May, 2011, the Spanish people took the streets and main squares of the country, where they camped for more than a month, claiming for changes of every kind. This extraordinary social phenomenon was soon known all over the globe as the “Spanish revolution”: fifty days of protesting, demanding, and, most of all, talking.A revolution, a wise man said, is an immense conversation. A fragment of this conversation, the one who took place in the Town Hall Square of Valencia, is what the camera of “50 days in May” shot and now passes trough, to keep it going.
