'Hollywood against Franco' shows how the Spanish Civil War was used in Hollywood between 1937 and 1975 - in line with the trends and interests of American politics of the moment. From liberal positions in the 40-prorepublicanas with Nazism as enemy, the approach to Franco in the 50s, when the enemy was communism. The relationship between cinema and politics is told through the story of Alvah Bessie, a Hollywood screenwriter who fought as a brigade in the Spanish war. The film is constructed with clips from famous movies like 'Casablanca', 'For Whom the Bell Tolls', 'The Snows of Kilimanjaro' or 'The Way We Were', among others.
