New film release, “Born”, depicts the days leading up to the siege of 1714

The film is directed by Claudio Zulian and opens in cinemas on the 21st of November

New film release, Born, which is based on real-life events, opens in cinemas on the 21st of November. The film is set in 18th century Barcelona in the days leading up to the siege of 1714 and is directed by Claudio Zulian, whose most recent documentary project, A través del Carmel, also focussed on one of the city’s barrios, or districts.

Born follows the adventures of boilermaker Bonaventura Alberni, his sister Marianna, and a rich merchant by the name of Vicenç, with whom both have some unfinished business. All three lived during the early years of the 18th century in the former Bornet district of Barcelona in a historical period of significant social, political and sexual upheaval.

The film, then, focusses on the lives of these three characters while offering an insight into life in the city three hundred years ago, prior to the disappearance of the Bornet district. The script is the work of the director himself in collaboration with Michel Fessler and Neus Rodríguez Roig and is based on the book La Ciutat del Born (The City of Born), by historian Albert García Espuche.

The film also stars Josep Julien, Vicky Luengo, Marc Martínez and Mercè Arànega and opens in cinemas on Friday the 21st of November.
