Review

The title of the film ''The Year of the Discovery'' refers to 1492, when Columbus discovered the Americas. 1992, which is called the “year of the discovery” in modern Spanish history, was the year when the Barcelona Olympics and the Sevilla Expo were held in Spain-and Spain was able to re-establish its image as a world power. In the same year, there were many protests in Murcia, where local laborers rebelled due to the industrial crisis, but the media was busy recording the nation’s big events. ''The Year of Discovery'' oscillates between 1992 and today, recording the conversations of people of different ages at a café in the center of Murcia. From conversations about an individual’s daily life to discussions about labor unions, racism, fascism, and dictatorship, the camera captures close-up shots of the speakers and the listeners. The split screen sporadically shows people’s reactions and their surroundings, but rather than detracting from the speakers’ arguments, these shots help their stories come forward and show off their power. The discussions of hope and skepticism that bloom in political passion are still relevant today that the stories from 1992 sound like stories today. What was it that the people of Murcia discovered that year, when they were able to accomplish what they’d desired despite the high risks? [Sung MOON]
