A PUNT D’ESTRENA, MARIA CARME ROCA

Cooltura
Monday, 25 January

Eulàlia Rovira is a popular and sought-after model from Barcelona. Her personal life, however, is a long list of mistakes. This is the reason why she has decided to leave her husband, whom she finds more troubling and strange with each passing day.
.
How has this situation come about? Even though she may seem to have a wonderful life, Eulàlia has suffered childhood illness, the Civil War, and a difficult family divided between the cities of Barcelona and Manresa. But if her grandmother, who lives anchored in the past, holds a secret, she has always has a dream herself, ever since she was little: The desire to become a great model. As far back as she can remember, Eulàlia has always had a passion for fashion and catwalks, and she was always amazed reading the illustrated magazine Jorba. Circumstances being what they were, she began working as a salesperson in Can Jorba and participating in the prêt-à-porter fashion shows organized by the store to show the models they designed. And, in all honesty, it was the natural elegance that captivates fashion designers that allowed her to take her first steps toward  a life of dreams and hopes that is about to begin. A punt d'estrena talks about the difficulty of coexistence, about opposing passions and about the price to pay for following your own dreams. You won't be able to put it down.
