An ex-convict, an unemployed immigrant and a successful businessman are the three main characters of this portrayal of inner Catalonia. Three stories showing a conflicting society forced to reinvent itself or collapse. Catalunya Über Alles! reps a misleading sledgehammer of a title for a three-part drama that, while undoubtedly punchy, also incorporates plenty of intelligence, wit and compassion in its examination of attitudes toward immigration. Its three yarns – grim, darkly comic and thriller-like, respectively – add up to a fresh, bold view of the hypocrisy of racism. Meanwhile, the decision to center events in a Catalan town rather than going for a bigger picture keeps things intriguingly grounded in the real.

Q&A with the director: 20th April, 18.45, Uránia, after the screening.
