The importance of being trivial
Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Negociador, written and directed by Borja Cobeaga, is a Spanish film that takes a comic look at the negotiations between the Spanish government and ETA that is being screened in the Zabaltegi section. Cobeaga says that he didn’t want to make a film that aimed to be deliberately controversial nor did he want to make an openly political film. He confessed he was a bit frightened about how people who hadn’t seen the film would react, but he thought that once they’d seen it, they’d realize it was very human in its focus and not really political at all. “It’s really about how although we are basically negotiating about something that has been the great obsession of this country for the last forty years, in actual fact the most trivial details end up being really important.”
