Fiction, 2019, 16′

A young girl returns to her home in Barcelona, but she hardly recognised the places due to the effects of tourism. She walks through the neighbourhood like in a dream. Her old apartment, the one where she lived a past love, is now an Airbnb rental. 

Love in times of gentrification. Anna returns to Barcelona for a few days. Walking the neighborhood  where she once lived a great love, it becomes inevitable to succumb to memories of that place, now adulterated by the tourist invasion. A narrative that uses the idea of magic realism with a charm that recalls the cinema of Hong Sang-soo. (Duarte Coimbra)
