Ada for Mayor


(Alcaldessa) Director: Pau Faus, E, 2016, original version / Czech and English subtitles, 85 min

Spain was one of the countries hardest hit by the 2008 economic crisis. Barcelona-based civil activist Ada Colau tried to organise help for people unable to pay their mortgages and losing their homes. This sensitive film captures the rebirth of an invincible activist into a woman who intends to honourably, with élan and good sense, take her civic platform into politics and be better than it. After her historic victory in July 2015, Ada led Barcelona City Hall. The documentary traces the 10 months from the time she announced her candidacy, through difficult negotiations and media appearances, to the tense election and her first day in office. The film includes personal footage from the video diary in which Ada often does battle with herself.
