Trailer of "A City Within a City"

Raquel Marques i María Romero García

In 2013 we filmed the last few months of the Encants Vells flea market before it moved to its new location: a building with a mirroring roof, constructed to regulate the chaos of the old market. We look at the images we filmed ten years ago, an archive that's a memory of the city and of the changes in the urban fabric, but also of our passage through a territory of possibilities. A precarious landscape that mirrors our uncertain daily lives, in permanent tension with the desire to create a home, beyond what's allowed by the property market. We approach the material we filmed back then and look for those threads that from the past and intertwine in the spaces we inhabit and dream today, so wild and disorderly.
