88' / 1978 / Spain
This film by Ventura Pons turned José Pérez Ocaña, a street painter and artist, into a key figure of the counterculture in the 1970s Barcelona. Together with scenes where Ocaña excels in his reinterpretation of the Spanish popular culture, the director includes others where the artist talks about his openminded way of understanding sexuality and his surroundings, Las Ramblas, an emblematic place where one of the most repressed segments of the Spanish society during Franco’s dictatorship becomes visible: the homosexual group.
