Far from Home (En otra casa) / Notes sur l’émigration. Espagne 1960
Location: Bartos Screening Room
Spain. Dir. Vanessa Rousselot, 2015, 54 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles. They come from Latin America to Spain in search of employment to support their families back home. Taking jobs as caregivers, nannies, and housekeepers, they become part of someone else’s household, thousands of miles—and worlds removed—from their own. Who are these women? What drove them to leave everything behind to start a new life overseas? With her eternally patient camera, documentarian Vanessa Rousselot shines a compassionate spotlight on a group of women living on the fringes of Spanish society.
