Film Synopsis: A Farm of Passage (La Granja del Pas)

Director: Silvia Munt | Countries of production: Spain | Year: 2015 | Length: 82 min
Language: Catalan with English subtitles | Age: 12+ years

This beautifully restrained documentary follows individuals of all ages and social backgrounds, who meet weekly at a community centre – the eponymous Farm of Passage – in the Catalonian city of Sabadell.

The group’s objective is to prevent evictions by providing legal advice, challenging banks’ lending terms or, as a last resort, advocating outright civil disobedience. As members share their stories and seek help from one another, the Farm of Passage offers a tangible chance, for those who have been left behind, to build a new sense of dignity: one born of defiance and mutual support.

Exploring the realities behind the statistics, the film provides fascinating insight into a community’s fundamental refusal to be defeated by unjust economic policies.
