Gloria is one of the 700,000 Spanish people who have left our country since the crisis started. The film portraits the experience of intra-European exile tackled by Spain’s highest-profile female director, Icíar Bollaín (Even the Rain, Take My Eyes). 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.

About the Director
Icíar Bollaín’s interest in cinema can be traced back to her teenage years and her roles in films such as Victor Erice’s El Sur (The South) and Manuel Gutierrez Aragon’s Misadventure (Malaventura). She subsequently appeared in Touching the Bottom, directed by José Luis Cuerda, Land And Freedom (Tierra Y Libertad), by Ken Loach, Jose Luis Borau’s No One Child (Niño Nadie) and Leo, for which she was nominated at the Goya® Academy Awards for Best Actress. She made her debut as a director in 1995 with Hi, Are You Alone? (¿Hola, Estas Sola?) with critical and audience success. She subsequently directed Flowers From Another World (Flores De Otro Mundo), Killing Loves (Amores Que Matan) and Take My Eyes (Te Doy Mis Ojos), for which she won seven Goya® Academy Awards, including Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Film. Then Mataharis came with two Goya® Academy Awards nominations.
