FIRE back to Barcelona, the International Film Festival of gay and lesbian films.
The new edition of FIRE! will take place from 2 to 13 July will take place in Barcelona. The event invites you to celebrate hedonism and attitude of ‘Glam’ as an expression of freedom. With the motto ‘We can be Heroes’ Bowie, inspired by his artistic influence, and the magnetism of his person as ethical and aesthetic reference to a way of being, feeling and creating.
Bowie is universal. Pop icon and hero, music, film, fashion, a visionary with attitude; a total artist.
