Pounding the tarmac through the seasons, a band of runners are brazenly challenged with intimate questions as they pace their routes. Liberated from responsibilities, their guards drop dramatically, releasing funny and brutally frank confessions, and weaving a powerful narrative behind the anonymous masses.
A film by Matan Rochlitz & Ivo Gormley.

BARCELONA in Flow-Motion - A fast moving short film….
In few other cities is it possible to walk from spectacular location to spectacular location. I had a fantastic time adventuring around Barcelona’s winding streets making this film.
Special thanks to Ferran Macià Edo and his colleagues from Agència Catalana de Turisme (Catalan Tourism Board) for helping me get access to shoot at numerous stunning locations including:
Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya
Gran Teater del Liceu
Museu D’Historia De Barcelona
Palau de la Música
Santa Maria del Pi
And an extra special thanks to Marta Garriga Bardalet for patiently modelling during an uncharacteristically cold and rainy day.

This film has been written symmetrically:
the second half is strictly like the first, but played backwards and mirrored.
The second part doesn’t act like a simple rewinding, but as the following of the first.
It explores all sorts of symmetry: compositions, shapes, sounds and music, scenario, colors, actions, time…
