The Rock

In 1969 the only fascist dictator who survived WWII, Francisco Franco of Spain, closed the entrance to the British territory of Gibraltar, isolating 30,000 people without food, water, or telephone lines. In his words, “the Rock will fall like a ripe fruit”. Over 13 years separated families met at the border every Sunday to look through binoculars at their estranged lovers, brothers, parents, and babies.
