Watch the first images of "Spain from above".
Spain, fifth largest economy in the European Union, is a country opening onto the Mediterranean as well as to the Atlantic Ocean.
After years of dictatorship, the country has experienced a modernization and economic growth unmatched in Europe. From the sky, we discover a nation that is in the process of change and whose territorial cohesion is now being challenged.
From dawn to late at night, we’ll be telling the story of a country and its small and large cities. Steeped in history, they have also become the country’s economic engins: Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, Seville etc. The coastlines and great Maritime Provinces attract tourists from all over the world as they offer port activities in full transformation…
From the sky, we get magnificent views of the vast rural areas such as Extremadura, La Mancha, the valleys of Duoro and Ebro, Andalusia and Murcia or the nature reserves of the Ordesa Valley, the Picos de Europa Park, Ses Salines Park or the Doñana Natural Park.
In the course of our journey, from ground to sky, a new face of Spain is emerging before our eyes. That of a country facing strategic choices after the deep recession that shook it just ten years ago.
The film is accompanied by a 5 x 26' history series. Click here to discover "SPAIN, HISTORY SEEN FROM ABOVE".
