Diarios de Frontera

Irene Gutiérrez

“An exquisitely shot and poetic meditation on the plight of African immigrants trying to reach Spain from the enclave of Ceuta on the North African coast, the film intercuts strikingly beautiful cinematography that dwells on moments and rituals of southern Spanish culture (fisherman’s processions, fairgrounds, military parades) with grainy mobile phone ‘found’ footage of an actual group of young men preparing to attempt the sea crossing from their make-ship refugee camp. Poetic, atmospheric and reflective, a thoughtful essay on the lure versus the reality of promised lands” by CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS (CCA), GLASGOW.
