Director Statement

On October 4, I heard on the net the heavy version of Els segadors – The Reapers (national anthem of Catalonia) by the American band A Sound of Thunder. The following day I contacted Josh, the band’s guitarist, to ask for permission to use their song as the soundtrack of my documentary Referendum, which describes all the events occurred in Catalonia on October 1.

On December 2, A Sound of Thunder arrived in Catalonia. In the afternoon, in front of 45,000 people, they opened the Concert for Freedom (Corcert per la Llibertat) at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona, where some images from my documentary Referendum were shown. In the evening, they gave their first concert in Terrassa.

When the first chords of the next to last song, The Reapers, were playing, the people’s response was indescribable: they got crazy and showed fearlessly their most repressed feelings during these hard times lived in Catalonia. That is the origin of this video.
In the videoclip appear images of the Referendum of the 1st of October in Les Borges Blanques.
