La Huida is the recreation of the title credits of a movie that will never be seen. This is the first script from Juan Antonio Bardem and Luis García Berlanga. The script falls within the Spanish context and investigates the audiovisual policies of the Franco’s dictatorship period. It pays homage to all of those authors whose projects were not carried out in a time that allows for speculation about the supposed timelessness of the notion of cinematic genres.
The result is similar to an animated film; within it we find various levels of interpretation that construct one single tale. As such, the information about the artistic and technical team is interwoven with the few known details of the plot. Some metatexts appear sporadically, making reference to the inconsistencies in the story of the censorship of the script that was later distributed by Berlanga. The leitmotif of the video are bills and mine stocks, which suggest the supposedly social content of the script.
