Hotel Omm brings together Isabel Coixet and two Chinese movie stars
As part of the collaboration of Grupo Tragaluz with Lychee Film Festival, the first Chinese film festival in Barcelona, Lychee Talks will take place at Hotel Omm on Monday, September 18th. Starting 6.30pm, this five star hotel in Barcelona will welcome producers, directors and professionals from the Chinese film industry to dialogue with the audience, creating therefore a space for cultural and artistic exchange in which the Spanish director and producer Isabel Coixet will also participate.
Next to her will be Xu Haofeng (the first director to introduce the non-fiction martial arts genre) and Wang Hongwei (who has starred in many of the films by Jia Zhangke, one of the most interesting directors nowadays). All of these speakers will share their personal experiences and will bring us closer to quality Chinese cinema, little known among the Western audience despite being one of the largest industries in the world.
After the event, Omm Club will turn into an exclusive movie theatre with the special screening of The Hedonists, a captivating drama starring unemployed coal miners. This film conveys the changes that have stricken the country and reflects the interest of its director, Jia Zhangke, for the disorientation of contemporary subjectivity.
“Lychee Talks”, inspired by the famous “Ted Talks”, are part of the Lychee Film Festival, which Grupo Tragaluz considers an interesting and pioneering opportunity to bring Chinese culture and cinematography to our city.

And for a complete evening, after enjoying “Lychee Talks” we suggest that you stay for dinner at the Roca Bar restaurant of the hotel. And enjoy tapas, dishes and sandwiches with the unmistakable and unique touch of the Roca brothers!
