Barcelona in Black


Few cities have undergone such a drastic and complete makeover in such short order while successfully retaining its enduring spirit and allure. “Barcelona in Black” is a story about Barcelona that captures the essence of this beautiful and multifarious city by chronicling the 30-year metamorphosis from an anchored to the past industrial city of the 80’s, through its Olympic revival, into its current cosmopolitan modernity.
Shot in time-lapse, this 8-minute film divided into three chapters, tells the story of these differing yet equally authentic versions of Barcelona.
