According to Variety, 27-year-old Elena Martin is one of the most important figures of the Catalan New Wave, a cinematic movement that proves that innovation is still possible in Spanish film. She is praised for the light she sheds on her generation's emotional conflicts and contradictions. 'Julia Ist' is no exception. In this feature debut, Martin embodies a Barcelonan student, about to leave for Berlin to study. While she is at first overjoyed and excited about the new environment, she soon starts to experience the difficulties of living away from home. Her long-distance relationship becomes strained and she finds herself rejected by the city she thought she could love.
