Barcelona Before
Barcelona, abans que el temps ho esborri | Mireia Ros, 2011
Spain | 95 minutes

Q&A with director Mireia Ros after the December 11 show!

A personal portrait of the 20th century, told through the photographs and other memorabilia left by one of Barcelona’s most successful and respected families. Through the Baladía family’s doors passed everyone from Nijinsky to Gardel. We meet some extraordinary characters, especially the women—such as Ramona Soler, one of the first woman to create her own factory, or Isabel Llorach, a major patron of the arts and the inspiration for a number of fictional characters. Writer Javier Baladía delves deeply into his extended family’s history, revealing the political and economic accomplishments alongside the shattered lives and secret love affairs, and offering a peculiar point of view on the private life of Barcelona’s elite during the “Golden Years” prior to the Civil War.
