Guard of honour.

Spanish Government: “We Will Come Out Stronger” - 60s

Spain’s lockdown is due to end on June 21st, and this public information film thanks those who persevered indoors since mid-March. Shot by Swedish director Anders Hallberg, the ad depicts those first tentative steps out of lockdown for Spaniards of all ages… with a little help from the country’s award-winning emergency services.

It’s a smart twist on the ‘clap for carers’ meme, as the cast are met by a PPE-clad guard of honour. Few countries have suffered as badly as Spain from Covid-19, and although the recovery has only just begun, this 60” outing neatly underlines the power of mutual understanding and appreciation.
