Marc Rosich

Barcelona in the 70s: A city awakens from the rigidity of the Franco dictatorship. Ahead Ocaña, artist, rebel and drag queen: star on the Ramblas of Barcelona – and in front of the Brandenburg Gate, when the Berlinale showed a film about him. Ocaña becomes the icon of
Liberation, with his extravagant performances and his legendary death in the flames of one self-designed costume.
Marc Rosich and his team take us away into the world and times of a rebel, among the great pioneers of a self-determined, queer movement in Europe.
