[es/en] La Colmena (The Hive) (2019) is a documentary style video sharing (some of) the inner life of Decidim, made from material recorded during the fieldwork with the Decidim Team (July 2018). If you are interested to help with translation/subtitles, please message me on Twitter. La Colmena builds on the experimental video The Sound of the Hive:

The Sound of the Hive (2018). An experimental video capturing the hum of the Decidim office which was still ringing in my ears for a long time after returning home from fieldwork. The first step towards making La Colmena [The Hive].

Tecnopolitical Histories from Xabier Barandiaran (2018).
