View on the Pragda STREAM site

Gloria is one of the 700,000 Spanish people who have left Spain since the crisis started. A native of Almería, 32, a teacher without a posting, Gloria has been a shop assistant in an Edinburgh store for the past two years. Along with the collective that she herself launched, Gloria has set up an action, an event which, with the motto “Neither lost nor silenced”, expresses the frustration and provides visibility and a voice to any of the over 20,000 Spaniards living in Scotland’s capital who wish to participate. The film portrays the experience of intra-European exile tackled by Spain’s highest-profile female director, Icíar Bollaín (Even the Rain, Take My Eyes).
