A perfect antidote against the hypocrisy of our western perspective on the refugee crisis that Europe faces today. A milestone and one of the most relevant films about Migration ever made in Spain. La Piel Quemada is forty years after its making more poignant, fresh and relevant today than it ever was, and we are proud to rediscover it to you thanks to our collaboration with Filmoteca de Catalunya.
Every country has its typical North vs South tensions, but in the case of Spain these were aggravated by a massive exodus of Andalusian workers (labelled “Charnegos”) to Barcelona and to the Catalan coastal towns during the 60s – as the country was preparing to become a tourist attraction for the enjoyment of Spaniards, Brits and Europeans alike.
