Abstract: The execution of anarchist militant Salvador Puig Antich in 1974 was one of the most important events in the final years of Franco's dictatorship. It gave rise to an enormous political mobilisation in Catalonia and throughout Europe, and acquired a crucial symbolic status in Catalan democratic culture, with Puig Antich as a myth of anti-Franco resistance. Manuel Huerga's biopic Salvador (Puig Antich) (2006) presents a deeply engaging narrative of these events. The film, a manifestation of the drive towards so-called 'recuperació de la memòria històrica' in the last two decades, was widely acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, but also attacked for its sentimental, depoliticised presentation of the figure of the anarchist militant.
