Institutional mismanagement in the wake of tragedy

On July 3, 2006, Valencia’s subway witnessed the worst metro accident in Spanish history. El día 3 [The Third of July] is the story of a fight against silence, oblivion, and against officially sanctioned lies. A universal story, similar to those which occurred with the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash (2011), the Santiago de Compostela derailment (2013), or of the Spanair crash (2008): reflecting the mismanagement of a crisis by official institutions, the oblivion into which the victims’ families faded, and those families’ tireless fight to obtain answers and justice.
