Somorrostro en tres actes

Marga Almirall Rotés

Simfonies de ciutat Spain 16 min World premiere Documentary


Through three different moments, between the sixties, the nineties and the present, the director portrays an emblematic place in Barcelona that has gone from being a marginal corner to becoming one of the epicenters of mass tourism. Somorrostro, now the beach, before the neighborhood, is the object of this dialogue between archival and current images that is also the reunion, between frames, of a granddaughter with her grandfather.
