TV3 premieres the documentary "1-O", a chronical of what happened on the 1st October and the days after the Catalan independence referendum
A MEDIAPRO production written and directed by Llus Arcarazo

“Sense ficció” on TV3 is set to premiere “1-O”, the documentary directed and written by Lluís Arcarazo and produced by MEDIAPRO.

On the 6th September 2017, the Catalan regional government called a referendum on the independence of Catalonia. Despite going ahead with the vote being banned by the Spanish government, on a wet 1st October, the vote went ahead in a particularly hostile atmosphere with thousands of people going to vote. “1-O” is a chronical of what happened on that terrible yet unforgettable day in which more than two million people fought peacefully for their right to decide their own future.
