Before the Transition, the Barri Xino didn’t exist because Barcelona insisted on hiding it.

Playing With Children is a documentary feature film that intends to reconstruct the history of the Barri Xino (red-light district) of Barcelona from the Transition to current times.

Playing With Children is a documentary feature film that intends to reconstruct the history of the Barri Xino (red-light district) of Barcelona from the Transition to current times. The film is really the history of the resistance of this district not to be erased, to become the Raval.
Before the Transition, the Barri Xino didn’t exist because Barcelona insisted on hiding it. The arrival of democracy brought the reality of the district into the light. From that moment on, the city activated a series of permanent reforms to turn it into something else. Each attempt to reform it occurred after a scandalous dramatic event. This documentary tries to reconstruct some episodes that have marked the history of the district in the last three decades, because in all of them, the substrate of the Barri Xino is present and resisting change.

Due to the fact that it is a documentary, actors do not intervene, but some fictional sequences are performed by the theatrical group La Vuelta.
A production of
Massa d’Or Produccions with the participation of the Master in Creative Documentary from the UPF, Televisió de Catalunya, Vía Digital, ICIC and ICAA.
