Juan Diego ..... Manuel Corté
Ana Fernández ..... Juliana Moren

After the end of the Civil War, Manuel Cortés, a former mayor of the town of Mijas in the province of Malaga, had no chance to escape from Spain. After a long and dangerous journey, he managed to get home at night without being discovered. His wife, Juliana, warned him of the numerous firing squads that were taking place in the village. So, they decided to open a small hole in the wall where Manuel could hide. Manuel Cortés could never have imagined that this small space behind the wall would become his personal prison for 30 years. This is the story of the so-called post-war moles who had to sacrifice an entire lifetime to escape repression.

30 Years of Darkness is not a documentary about the Spanish Civil War. It goes further. It tells about the post-war years and in this sense it is not one of those documentaries that approach war. The worst thing about wars is not just their victims, but the consequences that they cause. Like other countries, Spain experienced a period of dictatorship that trampled human rights. While the world saw a country going through a process of modernization, within the homes of the moles the real drama of the loss of freedom was being lived. Historians have told us that the Spanish Civil War ended in 1939. For the moles the war ended much later, thirty years later, in 1969, when a document published in the Official State Gazette pardoned the alleged crimes they had committed. 30 Years of Darkness tells how war affects families, no matter what side they are on. The characters range from those who were clearly involved politically, to those who felt locked in the midst of a fratricidal struggle they did not understand. 30 Years of Darkness is, above all, a story of survival. In this sense it takes a universal look at a local issue. The story of the so-called Spanish moles has a parallel with other known confinements caused by repression. The teenager Anne Frank hid with her family for two years in Amsterdam; the soldier Soichi Yokoi spent 28 years in a cave not knowing that World War II was over; the political activist Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years, a victim of apartheid; the Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was released in late 2010 after spending 15 years under house arrest. The story of the moles remains current.
