Migrant and Diasporic Cinema in Contemporary Europe

Migrant and Diasporic Cinema in Contemporary Europe

El tren de la memoria / Memory Train

Marta Arribas (2005)


Genre: Documentary

Documentary film following the return of a woman to Nuremberg, revisiting, after forty years, the city where she lived after having migrated at the age of 18—like two other million Spaniards in the 1960s—in search of a job. The film establishes a poignant connection between the subhuman treatment of Spaniards in Germany then and that of many immigrants in contemporary Spain.

Keywords: Spanish migration film; Spaniards in Europe (Germany); female migration; documentary; racism; biographical narrative; past; journey.
