Documenta Spain 2008, curated by Marta Sánchez
CAN TUNIS, directed by José González Morandi, Paco Toledo, 86 min., Spain, 2006. In Spanish with English subtitles. The film will be introduced by María del Mar Gómez and Patricia López, NYU Department of Spanish and Portuguese.

Juan and his eight brothers and sisters and dozens of cousins live in Can Tunis. He fills his days with singing, dancing, mischief and worse. His mother is in jail and his father tries to take care of the family as well as he can. Can Tunis is a seedy suburb of Barcelona. Since the 1980s, it's the place where drug addicts come to get their fix. Can Tunis is a sincere and poignant portrait of a neighbourhood in utter disorder. How will these people ever be able to hold out in a better area of Barcelona?
