La Grieta (The Divide)

  • Directed by Irene Yagüe and Alberto García Ortiz, Spain, 2017, 76 minutes. Best Feature Film and Audience Award at DocumentaMadrid 2018.
  • Post-screening panel discussion with filmmakers Irene Yagüe and Alberto García Ortiz.

Following the local government’s sale of thousands of public apartments to foreign investment funds in 2013, many families living in Madrid were forced to leave their homes. This film takes a hard look and, despite the implicit drama, is not without humor when it comes to two women and their families reluctant to leave the unique neighborhood of Villaverde.
