La segona pàtria (2009)

The victory of the fascist army in the Spanish Civil War led to a massive exodus of republicans who had to find refuge wherever they could. Mexico, led by its president Lázaro Cárdenas, was the only country which openly supported the republican cause and opened its doors to thousands of Catalans who found their second homeland in this country. This documentary is a tribute to all the people exiled and to the nation who welcomed them. “Mexico, you have opened your doors and your hands to the wanderer, the wounded, the exiled, the hero…” Pablo Neruda.
