Alejandro Amenábar is back to directing in Spanish for the first time since his beloved Oscar-winning The Sea Inside. WHILE AT WAR is an intense emotional drama set in 1936, at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. A story about the past which urgently questions our present day and which is destined to be one of the key films of 2019.

Salamanca 1936.  Celebrated writer Miguel de Unamuno supports the military rebellion hoping it will resolve the prevailing chaos in Spain. Meanwhile, General Francisco Franco adds his troops to the uprising, secretly aspiring to take command of the war.

The conflict turns bloody and with some of his colleagues incarcerated, Unamuno questions his initial stance. When Franco transfers his headquarters to Salamanca, Unamuno visits him, determined to request clemency.
