“Ní aquí ní allí” 2009


“Lola y Paco play “parchis” play all afternoon, they were delayed for an hour and a half. Paco is about to start a job cleaning tuna in “Fukuoka” and Lola embarks on a new life in the US. Lola tells him how she has always wanted to leave the village, meanwhile Paco carelessly flicks page by page through his japanese dictionary.”

Inspired by stories based on spanish immigration in the 1960´s “Ni aquí ni allí” (Neither here nor there) is a collection of stories that take place in an airport. The characters lives cross paths as they their exchange life stories and paralel identities. They experience many feelings on their journey of frustration, sadness and curiosity until they reach a self-assertion of identity and learn to understand and live with the decisions that will mark their lives.
