Imanol Uribe

Imanol Uribe (San Salvador, 1950) is one of the biggest names to have emerged from the boom experienced by Basque cinema in the late 70s. A director, screenwriter and producer, he carried off the Pearl of the Cantabrian Award for Best Film in the Spanish Language at San Sebastian Festival years back with El proceso de Burgos (The Burgos Trial, 1979). Having made La fuga de Segovia (Escape from Segovia, 1981) and La muerte de Mikel (Mikel’s Death), films also related to the political situation of the time, he turned his attention to other genres resulting in fine contemporary Spanish movie titles: Adiós pequeña (Bilbao Blues, 1986), El rey pasmado (The Dumbfounded King, 1991), the two movies for which he landed the Golden Shell at San Sebastian.
