The Department of the Environment of the Town Council of Molina de Segura has scheduled the screening and subsequent debate of the film Desarraigo, on Wednesday, June 12, at 7:30 p.m., in the assembly hall of the Colegio de Educación Infantil of Paseo Rosales, within the work carried out for the environmental recovery of the Segura River and for the dissemination and awareness about its ecological, social and cultural values, within the framework of the activities commemorating World Environment Day 2019.

Desarraigo is the second of four feature films framed within the project The memory of a river.

From pontoons to Guardamar, from the Murcian production company InDirectFilm, with which we want to pay homage to the Material and Intangible Cultural Heritage of the Segureña Community, as well as to all the towns and their inhabitants that accompany the river.

The memory of a river includes four films.

The first, Canalejas, shot at his birth, Pontones, Jaén.

This second installment, Desarraigo, a story from Valle de Ricote, filmed in the Vega Alta and Valle de Ricote, the third film whose premiere is scheduled for next year, La Acequia, includes the territories of the Vega Media and Huerta de Murcia.

Desarraigo, directed by Joaquín Lisón, tells the story of Soledad, an old woman who is preparing for the last trip she must undertake in life: the passage to the next world.

He talks about emotional heritage.

When speaking of heritage we want to refer to the set of goods, sometimes inherited or acquired, which, of course, can be given an economic value.

Along with these assets is our emotional heritage.

That is, our feeling of belonging to a place, our roots, the land where we have grown.

How to put a price on our neighborhood, the garden of the village, the garden of the house or the fig tree?

What law protects our past, our lost landscapes, our forgotten history?

Does emotional heritage have a value?

How to calculate it?

"I will leave here and nothing will take me, and even so I want to draw my past, protect my landscape, sing my song".


According to some local historians, there is a sense of uprooting in the current population of the Ricote Valley (Vega Alta del Segura River) whose motive could be traced back to the expulsion of the Moorish-Andalusian population between 1609 and 1615, following the decision of the king Felipe III.

That was the creator of the cultural landscape that is still contemplated today.

As in the Ricote Valley, also in many other places in the rural world, there is a serious uprooting.

The traditional way people relate to the land and its resources is changing.

A whole generation of long-lived people, along with their wisdom, live the fatality of not being able to leave their inheritance and material and immaterial heritage to their children, who have gone to another way of life.

The protagonist of the film, Soledad, in a last attempt to preserve her past, wants to fix the stone wall of her garden that collapsed in the last rains.
