Plou a Barcelona (2004)
Author: Pau Miró
A prostitute who reads Dante and looks for customers in museums. A pimp who eats hamburgers and chocolates all day long. A client who wishes for the death of his wife every night.
In port cities, impoverished communities often live alongside the city’s places for official culture. Plou a Barcelona, a story of a dark and fragile triangle formed by three characters (a prostitute, her pimp and one of her regulars), has as a backdrop this peculiar proximity between the hidden city, globalising consumerism and the world of high culture, so typical of Barcelona’s Raval area.
