This trailer is about the town of Marinaleda in Andalucia, Spain that since the first election of its major Juan Manuel Sanchez Gordillo in 1979 has adopted a cooperative approach to employment, housing and food production. It is often negatively described in the Spanish national media as the 'Communist Village'.
I travelled here twice with the writer, Keith Payne and together we worked on this video project. I also produced a photo essay and Keith Payne wrote an essay/article. Both are available here: finnrichards.com/portfolio/marinaleda
