“Barcelona Ciudad de Acogida” is an ethnographic documentary which, thanks to an one-year-and-half anthropological research with a collaborative approach, gives a deep insight into the everyday life, functioning and networking of diverse migrant communities in Barcelona and documents their persistent fight against the prevailing racist power relations.
