Screening as part of the Mediterranean Summer Special season.

Winner of the César Award for Best Animated Film and Best European Animated Feature, Josep is a film portrait of Josep Bartolí, the Catalan artist who fought in the Spanish Civil War and fled to Mexico after escaping from a concentration camp. Josep was a soldier against Franco, a lover of Frida Kahlo and victim of the Hollywood blacklist.

February 1939. Spanish republicans are fleeing Franco’s dictatorship to France. The French government has built a concentration camp, confining the refugees, where they barely have access to hygiene, water and food. In this unlikely context two men will become friends. One is a guard, the other is Josep Bartolí, a Catalan illustrator who fights against Franco’s regime.
