Interview to Luis Cordero and Chris Perriam on Icíar Bollaín’s En tierra extraña

Luis Cordero and Chris Perriam (SPLAS) presented a screening of the political documentary En Tierra Extraña (In a Foreign Land) by award-winning Spanish director Icíar Bollaín. The documentary tells the story of a series of Spanish migrants in Edinburgh. Both lecturers commented on the moving aspects of the film and its relevance in portraying the effects of the economic crisis. After the screening, they conducted a public interview by Skype with the director. This was part of the Podemos in Perspective public meeting, which took place last 18 January at the Pendulum Hotel Manchester and was organised by the Spanish new movement/party PODEMOS. There was an audience of approximately 200 people.
