Anhel de llum

Alba Cros Pellisé

Simfonies de ciutat Spain 10 min World premiere Documentary


Through a radically personal look, the director explores Barcelona and its light. How it falls through the streets of the city and the people around her; her chosen family. The sun as a brush that marks what is seen and what remains in the dark, and as a canvas the intimacy of the rooms of friends and lovers, the alleys of the Raval or the roads of Montjuic, from the urban center to the natural spaces.
