Cillian Shields and Angus Clelland join Lorcan Doherty to chat about Alcarràs, as well as Simón's other films and the hallmarks of Catalan cinema. 

Judith Colell, president of the Catalan Film Academy, explains how international success can benefit the next generation of Catalan filmmakers. 

This week's Catalan phrase is 'com una casa de pagès'. Literally, 'like a farmhouse', it means something very big or obvious.
