The Silent Generation.

This documentary wants to pay a tribute to the Barcelona’s LGBTQI older people, to the pioneers of the “movement” as well as to those who have been anonymous, through the narration in first person of events and elements that have marked their lives: the religious education, the repression from the Franco dictatorship, the democracy, and the first LGTBQI, AIDS or gay marriage associations.
