Simfonies de ciutat Spain 11 min World Premiere Documentary


The memories of Barcelona ’92 are still very much alive, memories of events that deeply marked a generation. Boys and girls who grew up induced by the wave of optimism and celebration of the Olympic Games. But where is that splendor? Cobi is dying in lonely fountains, the Palau d’Esports is a refuge for homeless people… Did Barcelona ’92 really exist? Where is the wealth that was promised? Weren’t we the center of the world? Raquel Barrera poses a film that is also the declaration of an imperfect love. The one with the director and the city. A place that, beyond great ceremonies, she opened her arms to when she, at eighteen, discovered herself a lesbian.
