DOCSBARCELONA - International Documentary Film Festival

A TRAVÉS DEL CARMEL (THE SHIFTING CITY)

Claudio Zulian
Spain 2006 90 min

PcWe cover nearly two hours of the life of a district in an uninterrupted long take. On 10th February 2006, between 4 and 6 pm, to be exact. The camera takes us through the Carmel district in Barcelona, through its streets and its squares. Along with the camera, we enter shops, houses, civic centres, offices and workshops. The residents who decide to take part in our project invite us into their homes and daily occupations, offering details of their everyday lives. Facts that suggest both the origins and the future of the city.
This experimental documentary is made up of a single sequence shot with a steady-cam: screen time and lived time thus coincide.
