Original Title: Franco e Salazar - os Irmãos Ibéricos
Portugal, 2004
Colour and B/W 57'   Portuguese Documentary

Salazar, the Portuguese dictator, and Franco, the Spanish dictator, had parallel lives and supported each other, being the front men for two regimes which for decades coexisted in time and only disappeared after each other's death. It was such a strong relationship that one would not live without the other. Based on rigorous international archive researches, historian statements and testimonials of people who worked closely with the two dictators, this documentary follows the historical path of both Iberian neighbours.
