From the beginning of the economic crisis in 2007, it is estimated that in Spain there have been more than 550,000 foreclosures. Considering the local government’s passivity when facing this emergency housing situation, civil society has been forced to organize. In 2009 was borned in Barcelona the PAH, the Platform of People Affected by the Mortgages, a citizen’s movement that defends the right to decent housing. Today the PAH has more than 200 nodes across Spain and has become the main opposition to the housing policies of the Spanish government.
‘SÍ SE PUEDE. Seven days at PAH Barcelona' is a daily account of Barcelona‘s Platform of People Affected by Mortgage in what could be a common week of its tireless activity. Seven interviews (combined with images collected for more than one year) lead the viewer through the different activities performed weekly in PAH Barcelona, illustrated with case studies and anecdotes of everyday life.
This documentary has put cameras in the heart of the organization to visualize, in addition to the drama, the huge invisible work behind the PAH and the process of transformation and empowerment of those who compose it.
