'Voices from a Mountain' by David Leach

A documentary film about British volunteers in the Spanish Civil War, focusing on the re-discovery of a memorial to English-speaking soldiers killed at the Battle of the Ebro in summer 1938. The memorial was re-discovered in 2005 in the Sierra Pandols with the names of 35 officers of the Brigade inscribed in the concrete. Most of the memorials to those that fought against the fascists in the Spanish Civil War were destroyed following the victory of the Nationalist forces in 1939. The documentary explores the civil war and the lives of five British republican volunteers who were killed at the Battle of the Ebro.
