Visionaries (2001) - Details

Based on real events, visionaries is the tale of a group of basque villagers whose religious visions predicted or predicated the civil war. In 1931, during the early years of the 2nd spanish republic, there was tension in a small village over new, secularising laws. Against this backdrop, a small group of young villagers claim to have seen the virgin whose warning of an impending conflict reinforced the existing divisions and focussed the attention of the country upon the small community, manipulated by the media and religious groups.
