25 Years After

Despite the fact that Gil de Biedma’s poetry output was brief, he became one of the most respected Spanish intellectuals of the second half of the 20th century. With foreboding lines such as the famous, "Of all the stories in history, the saddest is no doubt Spain's, because it ends badly”, he is still being quoted today. This documentary shows the human side of one of the most important Spanish poets. Poets and writers talk about their relationship and correspondence with him, and scholars share their conclusions about this iconic figure in their academic studies. Intelligent, generous, sometimes violent, Gil de Biedma is a versatile author of very extreme personality that left an indelible mark in Spanish poetry.
