The film documentary EMIGRA2 was created with the idea of spreading the reality of most migrants from Spain that since the outbreak of the economic crisis did not have another another alternative but to try their luck abroad, leaving behind a lifetime for a better future.

In the last century Spain has been both a destination country for immigrants and a source country of emigrants to other states. Economic and political circumstances have almost always been a deciding factor of these population movements.

Currently, following the global economic crisis that began with the collapse of Lehman Brothers in the U.S., Spain is experiencing an untenable situation of youth unemployment that has led many young people to seek their future in other European destinations less beaten by this failure of our economic model.

But there is another side of immigration not translated into figures that draw the attention of readers on the cover of a newspaper. It is the face of the deep feelings experienced by leaving the familiar surroundings to venture into new universes, customs, languages and silences, companies and loneliness, in search of a future where you do not depend on the grandmother's pension, for some, or that allows a decent professional projection capacity and preparation, for others.

This documentary film will tell the story of many Spaniards who found themselves forced to emigrate (some not so forced), but that ultimately leaved Spain in search of the possibilities that their own country does not give them.

Where is my Erasmus grant?

What makes this generation of emigrants different to those of the twentieth century?

What are the main feelings in the thought of emigrants?

What makes us differents from immigrants coming from North Africa?

And if our emigrants never return to Spain?

These are some of the questions we want to share with you , and we would also like you to send us your questions, and I mean it. I'll explain: the documentary has been thought to be organic. As it hapens to the emigrants, the first months we spent in our "host " country we are a bit lost , and we gradually adapt to the environment, the language, the character of the people, etc... until we find ourselves in this entirely new situation. We want our patrons may be involved in the content and the creative process of preproduction and production.

EMIGRA2 will show a trip by train around Europe (as many of our ancestors did to the destinations of the time, some of them quite inhospitable), where we will check the situation of some Spaniards in different parts of the continent, and see how they live, how they feel and ultimately, how are we all affected by the situation in our country fromafar.

#02 / ¡Ya hemos empezado a grabar material previo!

El viernes salí desde Graz (Austria) a Zúrich (Suiza) a las 22:24h en tren, allí me esperaba uno de los protagonistas del documental, Esteban, que me contó su historia mientras viajábamos juntos hasta Granollers en su coche. Posteriormente seguí mi camino hasta Barcelona en un cercanías para hacer noche y al fin, el domingo a las 14:30h llegué a Sevilla en el Ave.

¡Estas son solo algunas fotos del periplo! :)
