We're delighted to welcome Catalan author Gemma Ruiz Palà and translator Peter Bush for a conversation about Wenling's. 

Intertwining journalistic precision with the casual tone of joyful conversation, WENLING'S brings together friendship, gender and migration.

A female space par excellence, Wenling's nail salon becomes the crossroad for a myriad of women's stories.

From the unique perspective of a female documentary producer, we learn about the history of nail salons in the US and Europe, migration waves from the East to the West and gender relationships across cultures. Originally from China, Wenling arrived in Barcelona looking for a better life.
