Fail Better

Eva Garrido

Un impulso colectivo Spain 70 min Worldwide premiere


Opposite the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona is Plaça dels Àngels. A space without benches or trees that seems designed solely to highlight the Richard Meier building; to pass by and not to stay. Despite this, the square is filled every day with young people because steps, walls and ramps welcome anyone who wants to sit down; because the characteristics of the ground attract skaters from all over the world; because the glass facade of the museum is an immense mirror in front of which to rehearse choreographies.

Eva Garrido

She graduated in Hispanic Philology and Theory of Literature at the University of Barcelona. In the context of the “Documental i Gènere” course, she directed, with two more students, Arguments d’escalier, about the Raval neighborhood. In 2020 she premiered in Filmin Inquietos, a film about the Barcelona Zoo without interviews nor voice-overs. Fail Better, her third work, once again portrays an emblematic space in the city through a refined gaze.
