Bye, Bye Barcelona is a documentary about a city and it’s relationship with tourism, about the difficult coexistence between Barcelona and it’s people with tourism and tourists. It’s a documentary that exposes through the thoughts of some of its residents, the grave effects that mass tourism has in the city. Its sole purpose is to serve as a counterpoint of the much repeated idea tourism is good for all. This documentary speaks about what we lose because of it.
