Moving Barcelona is a magical realist dance story about the Catalonian capital, an autonomous region in the Spanish State contending with an identity crisis. A city with everything going for it is still haunted by the ghosts of its past and despite much progress, it finds itself unearthing old wounds. Narrated by celebrated actor, Pep Munné, who appeals for calm, there is a sense of reassurance that all is okay. The movement of the city however tells a different story, and he is resigned to the fact that things inevitably, are the way they are. Barcelonians, in pursuit of happiness, find themselves on a treadmill to nowhere in a tale of modern day life. Moving Barcelona is the eighth film in an award-winning collection of works by the London-based film-maker, Jevan Chowdhury to capture the world as a stage. Life on the street in London, Paris, Brussels, Dallas, Prague, Yerevan and Athens have all been recorded in this growing canon.
A tribute to the therapeutic virtues of losing your s**t told in 6 scenes
Fusion is a phenomenon, the manifestation of art in multiple forms of expression.
Magnetically drawn to a place, they surrender, exploring their limits to transcend their physical form. They melt like gold, sparkle, blend, and with a bang, everything is transformed.
This experience gives them the possibility to add, to flow, to change. It is the desire for mystery, for the new, for renewal, that makes them fuse.
The film about that beautiful moment, when you snooze alarm, close your eyes and fall back to sleep.
