Kikol Grau, España, 2014, 51 min.
Making use, with subversive intentions, of Youtube’s vast audiovisual archive, Kikol Grau conducts an imaginary interview with the punk bank Eskorbuto, while portraying the post-Francoist Spain of the 80s. The epitome of national punk was born and grew up on the marginalized left bank of the river Nervión, in Bilbao, and through its fits of lyrics spat out to the rhythm of three guitar chords, Grau makes an incisive collage, full of causticity, using news reports, ads, “cine quinqui”, video clips and almost any type of material within his grasp. An era shaken by terrorism and the shock of the arrival of democracy (and its first disillusionments), whose only possible soundtrack is that of Eskorbuto.
