“The powerful saga of an unlikely friendship.”
– Screen Daily
“Emphasizing the saving power of art and of the spirit of resistance within a hostile environment, Josep echoes the words of its protagonist perfectly: ‘beautiful ideas, if they do not meet a beautiful person, they become death.'”
February 1939. Spanish republicans are fleeing Franco’s dictatorship to France. The French government built concentration camps, confining the refugees, where they barely have access to hygiene, water and food. In one of these camps, separated by barbed wire, two men will become friends. One is a guard, the other is Josep Bartoli (Barcelona 1910 – NYC 1995), an illustrator who fights against Franco’s regime. In French, Catalan and Spanish with English subtitles. Director: Aurel (France 2020) 72 min.
