Living the Utopia is a 1997 documentary, produced by TVE and directed by Juan Gamero, which describes the anarcho-syndicalist and anarcho-communist experience lived in Spain that radically transformed the structures of society in large areas of the Republican side, an event called the Spanish Revolution , during the civil war of 1936-39.

It consists of 30 interviews with anarchist survivors of the Spanish revolution, whose testimony shows the constructive work of the social revolution and the historical background of the Spanish libertarian movement. This constructive work meant, according to the documentary, the organization of agricultural collectives of around 7 million peasants, 3,000 factories and collectively self-managed companies in the cities, the union of 150,000 militiamen against fascism, as well as cultural, educational and cultural activities.
