Premiere of the documentary Removendo a terra, a work by Antonio Caeiro


In 2021, the University of Santiago de Compostela signed a research agreement with the Xunta de Galicia to develop the Quadrennial Plan for Democratic Memory. This research was carried out by an interdisciplinary team made up of historians, archaeologists, forensic scientists and geneticists, members of different USC research groups. 


The actions that were carried out were: Documentation, exhumation, forensic and genetic analysis of the mortal remains found in the mass graves of Vilagarcía de Arousa and Creciente. 


In addition, other initiatives were carried out, including the collaboration with the Faiado da Memoria de Vilagarcía for the production of a documentary based on previous works of the Faiado and those developed by the investigation team in the Rubiáns pit in November 2021. The result of this is what we present on May 30 at 7:30 p.m. at the USC Auditorium (Plaza de la Universidad, 1): The documentary REMOVENDO A TERRA, a work by Antonio Caeiro and Margarita Teijeiro
