Notes on emigration. A recently discovered cinematic jewel

This recently discovered short fillm by Jacinto Esteva is an investigation into the motives of Spanish workers who migrated to Switzerland in the late 50s, early 60s turns into a sometimes caustic, sometimes melancholic rumination on the land they left behind.

 A work in between cultures and cinematic modes, a starting point, an opening statement - a clarion call.
