It does some days, presented the documentary Hid under earth, of the realizador Quim Paredes and the historian Jaume Prat. It was in the Municipal, full, with the mayor in the first place and many of the witnesses that take part in the film present in the platea. Some were not to time, to some age, the step of the days is inexorable.
It is necessary to congratulate the managers with Pere Freixas in front. They have done, each in his place, a good work.
