Despite being one of the top titles of world cinema, ‘A Clockwork Orange’ was banned by the Francoist government. However, and surprisingly enough, the film was released without passing through the filter of censorship at Valladolid’s ‘Film Week’, which was held in one of the most conservative cities in the country. How was this possible? This documentary, which engages the collaboration of the film’s lead actor Malcolm McDowell aims to immerse the viewer in the endeavour of answering this question, while at the same time posing a more profound one: can a movie change the world?
