Iván Z.
Andrés Duque and Iván Zulueta

This documentary endeavours to unfold the life of a strange, marginal filmmaker, who prefers to reassert his individualism rather than follow his generation?s movie trends. The documentary reflects on the difficulty of living, the impossibility of leaving a childhood populated with scrap books and home-made games, the impossibility of making films, the impossibility of not making films. It also talks about an intensive life, that of the director himself. Despite having kept well away from the commercial circuit, Zulueta has left an indelible mark on Spanish cinema. It?s not easy to find his movies, but his work is still alive and that?s what matters.
An assiduous producer and reporter with the HBO channel at the San Sebastian Festival, Duque, from Venezuela, has made a number of documentaries (República independiente, Coolhunters) and experimental videos (Salón Rojo, El lado oscuro de mi compadre). The jump to medium-length films with this documentary report on the everyday life of San Sebastian filmmaker Iván Zulueta took him several years to film given the dark, closed approach of Zulueta when it comes to his own self.
