Presentation in Barcelona of "LAS CLOACAS DE INTERIOR"
An investigation into the dirty tricks at the heart of the Spanish Interior Ministry / Presented by Jordi Évole and Jaume Roures

Nine months of investigation and detailed analysis boiled down into 80 minutes of documentary film-making which for the very first time shine a light on the dirty works and corruption at the heart of the Spanish Interior Ministry and which until now had remained hidden from public view. Thanks to the exclusive testimony of Marcelino Martín de Blas (former head of the Internal Affairs Unit), José Ortega (a member of the Civil Guard), Jaime Barrado (former commissioner and one of Spain's most highly decorated policemen) and a high-ranking Interior Ministry civil servant; and the investigation by Carlos Enrique Bayo and Patricia López de Público, "LAS CLOACAS DE INTERIOR" provides a comprehensive analysis of the court-case summaries in which high-profile members of the upper echelons of the police force have been involved. Written by Jaume Grau and produced by Andrea Ferrando, with Jaume Roures directing, the documentary features high-impact testimonies shedding light on the network of illegal activities within the ministry.

The tape-recordings between the Interior Minister Jorge Fernández Díaz and Daniel de Alfonso (the then head of the Catalan Anti-fraud Office), published in June 2016 by the Público newspaper, represent the catalyst for revealing the network of interests and corrupt practices which implicate the police, judges, state lawyers and the business community. The documentary also charts the bad practice within the Interior Ministry since the transition to democracy. The Interligare, Elisa Pinto, the Veritas Report cases, as well as the espionage network within the PP party in Madrid, Operation Catalonia and the PISA report into the financing of Podemos.

Jordi Évole and Jaume Roures are to present "LAS CLOACAS DE INTERIOR" for the first time on Wednesday 28th June at the Aribau Cinema in Barcelona.

The "MEDIAPRO LIVE, la revolución en directo" exhibition has reached the 10,000-visitor mark in just two weeks at the Palau Robert in Barcelona with its look at the human effort behind and the technological revolution that sees news and entertainment sent around the world immediately. So far since the start of the exhibition, some ten groups have been able to enjoy a guided tour. MEDIAPRO has set up an e-mail address for audiovisual professionals as well as students and other interested groups to sign up for a guided tour of the exhibition: mediaprolive@mediapro.es

Visitors are able to see a host of icon images from the last 20 years, share a script-meeting with the "El Intermedio" team via 360º technology or see how the MEDIAPRO Group, Europe's most important audiovisual group, really works via 100 touch-screen tablets. An exhibition which encourages the visitor to use new technologies to see how the world of audiovisual production works. It is also an explanation of what MEDIAPRO is, by the people who make the company and the people and the projects that have shaped the Group's 24-year old history.

The Cuban film "Esteban" is set to be screened for the first time in the marquee in the garden

The exhibition calls it a day at 20:00 but it's just the start of the parallel activities on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Since the start of the exhibition and until its close on the 24th September, MEDIAPRO has programmed a series of events screening some of the Group's most emblematic productions. The screenings will take place in the marquee set up in the garden with free access and some big premieres.

The first season of "The Young Pope", in the MEDIAPRO marquee in the gardens of the Palau Robert in Barcelona

This Friday and Saturday inside the MEDIAPRO marquee set up in the gardens of the Palau Robert in Barcelona sees the screening of the entire first season of the series starring the British actor Jude Law and directed by the Italian Paolo Sorrentino as part of the parallel activities alongside the "MEDIAPRO LIVE", la revolución en directo" exhibition. Two days to see the ten episodes of the first season, five episodes per day kicking off at 8 in the evening with free entrance for all. The series was presented in Spain last October and so far, has only be shown on the HBO subscription channel.

"The Young Pope", which has earnt rave reviews from the TV critics, is a SKY, HBO, CANAL+, WILDSIDE international production co-produced by MEDIAPRO and HAUT ET COURT TV featuring a high-profile cast featuring Jude Law, Diane Keaton, Silvio Orlando, Javier Ca"mara, Scott Shepherd, Ce"cile de France, Ludivine Sagnier, Toni Bertorelli and James Cromwell. It tells the story of Lenny Belardo, alias Pius XIII, the first American Pope ever. Young and charming, his choice to become Pope might, on the Surface, appear to be a simple and efficient media strategy by the College of Cardinals. However, it might not be what it seems. Especially, in the place and among people who have chosen God as their compass. This place is the Vatican and the people the ecclesiastical hierarchy. The most mysterious and contradictory figure turns out to be Pius XIII himself. Insightful yet naïve, primitive yet innovative, melancholic and implacable, Pius XIII tries to cross endless river of human solitude to find a God ready to help humanity. And himself.

Close to 50 activities programmed for the marquee in the gardens

Screenings will take place on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings in the marquee set up in the gardens. During the day, the area will be used as exhibition space and when its closes at 8 in the evening, every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday it will play host to screening of films, TV series, plays and concerts produced by MEDIAPRO, and becoming a key part of entertainment activities over the summer months in Barcelona.

An exhibition with 9 different themes
"MEDIAPRO LIVE, la revolución en directo" occupies 450 m2 and is divided into 9 different spaces, 7 of which are to be found on the second floor of the Palau Robert building.

The route starts with the "Live" space which takes an in-depth look into the reality of today's world with a sample of some of the most iconic images of the last 24 years. The exhibition then moves on to the "Entra" space where the visitor is invited to marvel at the diversity of the projects in which MEDIAPRO has been involved and with a set of 360 glasses, will get a chance to see how a TV series such as "Nit i Dia" is made and how a script meeting on the programme "El Intermedio" is conducted.

But the exhibition has still got two more spaces: "Somos", which provides an interactive journey through the 150 projects in which the MEDIAPRO Group has taken part since its creation and a space devoted to virtual reality and creativity where visitors can interact with the work of Miquel Barceló, and where they can try their hand at adding to his dome in the United Nations building in Geneva.

"MEDIAPRO LIVE, la revolución en directo" continues in the gardens of the Palau Robert with a cutting-edge marquee which shows how a Barça-Real Madrid game, the most watched sporting event in the world, is beamed to 160 countries around the world. Via the "We live football" video, the story behind the broadcasts of the matches is revealed and how the excitement and passion for football can be relayed to the four corners of the world.

For football or any other breaking news story to be seen by millions of people, the last piece of the jigsaw is the: "Outside Broadcast Van". A space which is usually only accessed by very few people and which MEDIAPRO is opening up for visitors to the exhibition being able to step inside one of Europe's biggest outside broadcast vans and which is capable of managing any type of TV event.
