IN A FOREIGN LAND

DIRECTOR: ICÍAR BOLLAÍN - SPAIN

The current financial crisis in Spain has forced an estimated 700,000 young people to emigrate in the hope of a better life. Edinburgh is one of the most popular destinations, and the city is home to more than 20,000 Spanish people. In a Foreign Land follows three expatriates as they build new lives and search for new opportunities while suffering the indignation of having been cast aside by their own country. One of them is Gloria, 32, a teacher from Almería who works in Edinburgh as a shop assistant. Gloria decided to create the collective “Ni perdidos ni callados” (“Not lost and not silenced”) to express the anger and frustration felt by many Spaniards who have moved to Scotland’s capital.
