    • Synopsis
    • Using Peter Weiss's novel "The Aesthetics of Resistance" (1975-1981) as a guide, we aim to superimpose it to the present time and see how we can take advantage of it in order to deal with our day-to-day. Respecting the formal characteristics of the text, we will access the occupied Spanish Credit Bank building, in Catalunya Square in Barcelona, through the Hotel Colón, home of PSUC in 1937, on the eve of the general strike of September 29, 2010. The discussions that took place at that night's assembly will be later confronted and put into question by the main characters of the film: five anonymous friends who are no longer adolescents nor communist militants and yet also try to oppose the state of things, as did the protagonists of Weiss's novel –the narrator, Hans Coppi, Horst Heilmann, Karin Boye and Charlotte Bischoff.
