That is more or less "Not quite
gone with the bishop"
This was the affiche for the fiesta where the neighbours would introduce their idea of organizing a summer cinema in july and august.
The summer cinema has been working
all this time, we have had some three hundred people each friday. For la
fiambrera it has kept being a question of offering weapons to be able to
solve, in a fiambrera way, very specific aspects.
For instance, there came this time where the police suddenly realized we were using electric equipment in the middle of nowhere, so they thought and thought and finally concluded that surely we were illegaly using electricity from street lamps. They came to check, but by the time we had already worked out our "Thymo SFG" an autonomous power engine (which is not autonomous at all and that is not a power engine but a washing machine engine and some electric wires in a red-painted wooden box.)
It made a runrun sound, just like
a power engine and if it was switched off, then our light would go down.
That was convincing for the council intelligence services. and we carried
on taking the electricity from wherever we wanted to.
Of course when the police came the whole cinema was laughing, though they were convinced it was because of the funny film. what film was it?
An important question has also been
the production of graphic material, which somehow was a process of constructing
a political speech, absolutely separate of the conventional resources of
the political parties.
For instance our people took this soviet affiche of the 2nd WW and remade it according to our ways of fighting, here is the result:
Sorry if we forgot to say that our fight campaign has become well known in madrid for we always prepare great meals, we light fires in the park, prepare some enormous barbecues and get our "morcillas" and "tocino", and "chorizos" ready as a political statement, indeed as a political "credo .
Finally, we have programmed spanish films widely known, whose directors have been coming to the park to introduce their films and have dinner there with the people, but at the same time we have been programming every short-film we have found related to the question of evictions, gentrification and the like, in every part of the world. Somehow this has started to create a feeling of relatedness, which is politically nearly as important as the above mentioned morcillas.
