"Shouts in the Sky" is a documentary film about the civil movement born in May, 2011, in Barcelona, Spain. Through an occupation of the main square, Plaça de Catalunya, which remained occupied for months to demand direct democracy and rethinking of economical and political structures, the movement created a new space that challenged the passivity of society. As the uprising grew, the state and the media used many ways to try to discredit and stop the movement violently - sound familiar? - but the movement was determined to peacefully resist, despite being fired upon by police brandishing rubber bullets.

"In the film we follow many dialogues between people, police, ideologies, political and economical forces and the state," the filmmakers said.
