I’d been living overseas since 2008, seeing how my friends from college back in Spain were doing one of three things after graduating: studying a Master’s Degree, being jobless, or emigrating. It got to the point in 2011, when I was in Los Angeles doing a Master’s in Film and Television Producing, that practically every day someone on Facebook was leaving Spain. It all came to a head on September 25, 2012 with the Rodea el Congreso (Surround Congress) protests and the brutal beatings that the riot police were giving the protestors. That’s when I realized that they were kicking us out of the country, with sound beatings if they had to. I think that the rage I felt when I saw those images is what gave me the impulse to tell the story of my generation.
