In the words of Margarita Ledo Andión “Nación is a film about women, about working women who dream of returning to the factory. It is a feminist film, it gives experience of sorority. It is a film to extinguish the darkness, the night and the darkness that has veiled the body, the rights, the smile and the desire of women. A film of class, of the workers of Pontesa, of Odosa, of Regojo, of all those who represent us, brave women who show their teeth. We come from them”.
