An Acteon production in coproduction with TV3. With the support of Institut de Cinematografia i Arts Audiovisuals (ICAA) from the Ministerio de Cultura and the Institut Català d’Indústries Culturals (ICIC) from the Departament de Cultura de la Generalitat de Catalunya .
Alex, a documentary director, gets to know Beatriz, a poor, eccentric lady who has an original knowledge. He finally proposes her to film a documentary about her life and her neighborhood’s life. The things she explains and that she shows let the documentary arrive to a really critic, poetic and insurgent point.
Although, the incompatibility between her personal world and the pression from the audience will finish with Alex pure intentions and will let Beatriz onto a limit situation.
Beatriz/Barcelona is the tragic impossibility to take an alternative to the “normal” life of the consumer society, as a fatal mechanism where they are all traped.
Cast: Beatriz - Mercè Arànega, Àlex - Josep Linuesa and Carles - Pep Jové.
