Synopsis

She sneaked into the Beatle’s suite, she tricked Roman Polanski, she was Raphael’s photographer, she chose Massiel’s dress for Eurovision, and Clint Eastwood kissed her once. She was friends with Xavier Cugat, Joan Manel Serrat, the Duchess of Alba, Fernando Rey, el Cordobés, Lola Flores, Salvador Dalí… This is the unknown life and work of Joana Biarnés, the first Spanish photojournalist, reclaimed thanks to the discovery -this century, of striking images of the terrible 1962 floods in the Vallès region, captured by the then young photographer. A pioneer, who overcame the prejudices of an era, succeeded in her profession, met and immortalized famous historic figures, and just when she could have become a legend, she disappeared.
