Spain in Flames

"Spain in Flames" (1937) is a propaganda film, made during the Spanish Civil War in favour of the Republicans (Communists, socialists and anarchists, but notably also centrist and liberalist elements). Ernest Hemingway helped write some of the commentary for it.

Later, Hemingway and John Dos Passos went to Spain and founded the company Contemporary Historians, Inc. which produced another film called "The Spanish Earth", directed by Joris Ivens.
