Aupa Etxebeste!

Patricio Etxebeste runs a beret factory; he is one of the village "notables" and is a candidate in the forthcoming elections for mayor. His business isn't going well, the banks won't loan him any more money, his credit cards are blocked and his planned summer holidays in Marbella are impractical. How can he save face and prevent the entire village from finding out about the situation he's in? The makers of this debut film, who are already well known for their shorts, have dared to make fun of the most common clichés about the Basques in this farce full of gags, which is the first full-length fictional film shot entirely in Basque.
Asier Altuna participated in workshops in Caracas, Vitoria, San Sebastian and San Antonio de los Baños (Cuba). In 2002 he wrote, directed and produced the short film Topeka, prizewinner at various festivals. Telmo Esnal has worked as a TV and film technician, collaborating with Altuna on the script and directing of the short films Txotx, Basque Film Archive Award for Best Short Film in 1997, and 40 ezetz.
