At the age of 19, Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) was a highly gifted athlete well on his way to becoming a football legend. However, a brutal injury during a game put an end to his professional sports career. Nobody except Pilar Belzunce, his life-long partner, suspected that the young goalkeeper from Hernani was about to rewrite his future and die decades later as one of the 20th century’s best sculptors. Chillida: Esku Huts is not a conventional biography, but a poetic, intimate look at an artist second to none. A person who remains alive through his work, his eight children and some of his closest collaborators.

BIOGRAPHY

Juan Barrero was a documentary-maker for National Geographic, an experience that would inspire his first feature film, La jungla interior (2013), selected for international festivals worldwide and winner of the New Waves Award for Best European Film at the Seville European Film Festival (SEFF). In 2012 he founded Labyrint Films. His works as a producer, editor and photographer have been selected for the Cannes, Locarno, Viennale, San Sebastian, Havana, Munich, Sao Paulo, Cartagena de Indias and Marseilles festivals… where they have landed myriad awards.
