Synopsis: Migrant maps is a review of migrations in Barcelona, from the years after the Civil War until nowadays, narrated through buildings and street furniture. Migrant maps is an atlas, a set of maps drawn by the voices of migrants, whose past tales invite us to reread present places. Charting the invisible, we enter a territory where the subjectivities will erase the lines built by the dominant discourse.Director: David Batlle
