Waiting for Barcelona  

Juho-Pekka Tanskanen, Finland, 2018, 85'

Barcelona’s labyrinthine streets are the epitome of romantic city life – as long as you don’t live on them. But 27-year-old Mou does – he left his homeland as a 13- year-old and has since lived a homeless life around Las Ramblas. But Mou is not just streetwise, he is also a popular man and his friends’ friend. A love affair with a Spanish girl gives him hope of a new life – and a happy ending? – but the past and the mental pressures of an impossible situation catch up with his otherwise so positive spirit.
