The film, which can be seen from the 13th of September onwards, is a portrait of flamenco in the gypsy community of Barcelona
“Bajarí” is the name given to Barcelona in caló, the language of the gypsies, and also the title of the documentary filmed by Eva Vila about the world of flamenco that exists on our doorstep.
Bajarí has already been presented in a number of festivals to notable success. In the film, Eva Vila approaches the sense of belonging to a particular community, the Catalan gypsies, while “delving into the side of Barcelona that, while hidden, has always existed, and reflecting on the universal sense of belonging to somewhere”. This exploration of a very specific environment is not new to Vila. Her previous documentary, B-side: La cara B de la música en Barcelona (The B-side of Barcelona music), explored the city’s community of musicians and their varied origins.
