A beautifully filmed study of a rural world whose ancestral culture is vanishing.

Somewhere on the central Meseta plateau in Spain, a shepherd dreams of visiting Lake Titicaca, two sisters — the only two children left in their town — search for Pokémons without any luck, and an old man counts the empty houses of the village in order to fall asleep at night.

The camera wanders through low hills, wide valleys, green rivers, vacant towns, deep ditches, power plants, and structured wiring. In its journey the film encounters some of the few people who still inhabit this place and recounts the vulnerable and vivid story of their challenging present. Combining an observational tone with an almost surreal manner, Inland offers a sensorial journey through the empty territory of Spain.


Educated in Environmental Studies and Audiovisual Communication, Juan Palacios (b. 1986, Basque Country, Spain) is a filmmaker based in Amsterdam. He works with experimental video, observational documentary, and visual-diary film essays. With a particular predilection for the boundaries between human culture and nature, mysticism and materialism, he mostly employs imagery from a factual world without an apparent mise en scène to create an alternative universe.

He produced, wrote, filmed, directed and edited several films that have been shown in festivals around the globe. His first feature documentary film, PEDALÓ, won the Irizar Basque Film Award at San Sebastian International Film Festival, 2016 and The Best Feature Documentary Award at Bushwick Film Festival in New York in 2017. He is currently finishing his second non-fiction feature film, MESETA (INLAND), a sensorial trip through the empty landscape of Spain. In 2018 he began the Master Artistic Research in and through Cinema at the Netherlands Film Academy.
