Film Presentation:
In Barcelona, o ramasita a vechiului oras intra in Mediterana, despartind plaja urbana de noul port nautic si rezistand in felul sau atacurilor dezvoltarii imobiliare. Strazile marinaresti din La Barceloneta se intind in umbra apartamentelor unde inca vezi haine atarnand la uscat in balcoane si poti deosebi usor vecinii noi pentru ca ei "nu stiu cum sa le intinda corect". Locuitorii din La Barceloneta isi apara cartierul si isi povestesc vietile pregatindu-se pentru festivalul anual de pe strada lor, care depinde mai putin de birocratia orasului si mai mult de bunavointa celor care locuiesc aici. Aceste pensionare pun zambete pe buze si stiu fiecare colt al cartierului. Filmul face greul sa para usor captand esenta a ceva ce dispare, intre amintiri despre legende cu marinari si presimtirea modernitatii.
