The desire to make the film as participative a project as possible is also reflected in the choice of the promotional poster.

The production company Media 3.14, with the help of the Obra Social" la Caixa" Foundation, produced "Dorotea de Chopitea, una señora de Barcelona", the documentary based around the figure whose name features in the programme's titles as part of the "Sense ficció" season on TV3 on Tuesday 20th December.
2016 saw the 200th anniversary of the birth of Dorotea de Chopitea (1816 – 1891), who was the key figure behind the projects to help fight poverty among Barcelona's poorest in the second half of the 19th century. She is considered the most important person in the construction of the biggest social works of her age. Her legacy includes the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital, the Sagrat Cor Temple in Tibidabo, as well as a host of schools, hospitals and residences distributed around the city of Barcelona.
The 45-minute documentary is presented by the journalist Agnès Marqués, produced by Jordi Dorca, written by Jaume Grau with executive producer Joan Úbeda. The documentary features a host of different people familiar with the life and work of Dorotea de Chopitea, including the journalists Enric Calpena and Lluís Permanyer, the historians Dani Cortijo, Mercè Tatjer, Roser Nicolau and Carles Sudrià, the priests José Arlegui and Nicolás Echave, and the Archbishop of Barcelona, Juan José Omella.
A biography linked to the history of Barcelona
Dorotea lived almost all her life in a Barcelona which was undergoing one of its most tumultuous and passionate moments of its history. The documentary features two inter-related stories: the story of the city and the profound changes which it was experiencing in terms of its economic, political and urban model, which generated a high-level of conflict and the life of a woman from the upper-middle classes who is a witness to the changes in her surroundings and who decides to take action to help the victims of the change.
The work supported by Dorotea is part of a wider change in the town-planning of the city and which grows into what is the modern-day Eixample, beyond the original city walls. Following the foot-steps of Dorotea is an excellent way of getting to understand the big social, urban and architectural changes in the Barcelona of the 19th century.
