In a Foreign Land

In a Foreign Land

Gloria is one of the 700.000 Spaniards who have left their country since the start of the crisis. A native of Almería, 32, a teacher without a posting, and a shop assistant in an Edinburgh store for the past two years, Gloria has set up, along with the collective that she herself launched, an action, an event which, with the motto “Neither lost nor silenced”, expresses their frustration and provides visibility and a voice to those who wish to participate from among the over 20.000 Spaniards in Scotland's capital.

Icíar Bollaín, born in 1967, is an award-winning Spanish actress, director, and screenwriter. As an actress, Bollaín starred in films by Manuel Gutiérrez Aragón, José Luis Borau, and Ken Loach.
