Dominó: agarrado por la crisis (2014 Video)
- Summaries (3)
Luis, an ordinary individual in Spain caught up in that country's economic crisis, a crisis that began in the United States. As we watch him struggle with unemployment and the threat of foreclosure, we are reminded of the 4 million long-term unemployed in the U.S., the growing gap between rich and poor, and the millions of foreclosures that have occurred since 2008. Luis does all the right things: goes to an unemployment office, checks out the employment listings posted by private firms, checks the newspaper listings, asks friends for a job, accepts whatever part-time work is offered to him...and goes to the bank to apply for a loan. A set of domino players makes it clear, in casual conversation, that Luis' plight is simply a microcosm of what is happening in the entire country. Underlining this theme, we join Luis in watching a demonstration, observe a man hired by a bank as he arranges for the removal of furniture from a home the bank has foreclosed on, and hear two bankers in conversation discussing a disastrous investment that has collapsed. We also see Luis' family, which doesn't realize that he (and they) are on the brink of disaster, plan for the wedding of his eldest son, a wedding which Luis frankly is not going to be able to pay for. And we ask ourselves, is there any way Luis will be able to save the situation?
Luis, a middle-aged family man caught up in the economic crisis, as are millions of Spaniards today. As we watch to see if he will find a way out of his serious problems, we are reminded of the 4 million long-term unemployed in the USA, the growing gap between rich and poor, and the threat that continuing instability at the national level puts us in.
This is a story about Luis, a middle-aged family man in Spain, caught up in that country's economic crisis. We watch to see if he will find a way out of his problems, we are reminded of the U.S. with 4 million long-term unemployed.
