This word was not in my vocabulary a few months ago, but now it crops up with increasing frequency. “Desahucio” means “eviction” and these are occurring with at an unprecedented scale in Spain, in many cases just six months after a person ceases to pay their mortgage. This chilling documentary follows the work of those who carry out the eviction orders, in which people are saddled with embargoed accounts and massive debts for the rest of their lives, as well as suffering the loss of their home.
