SPITTING WINDWARD

Spring 2002: the tanker 'Prestige' began leaking oil off La Coruna on the Spanish coast. The Spanish authorities had the ship towed to deep water. The result was an unprecedented oil spill. Unsatisfied with the action of the government authorities, the local population united in the action group Nunca Más (Never again!). Sendón joined with them and in the series Cuspindo a Barlovento (Spitting into the wind) recorded how Nunca Más cleaned up the beaches of his youth, often with nothing more than frying pans, knives and pitchforks.
