Pelota II
Zinemira - Not in competition

Documentary on the Basque sport of hand-pelota focussed on the fateful relationship of the pelotari with the pelota ball. Following the players’ obsessive quest to find the perfect ball every game, the film penetrates a country whose modernity has detracted nothing from its existential passion.

BIOGRAPHY

Danish poet and filmmaker Jørgen Leth has written 15 books and made around fifty films. An unavoidable reference in documentary making, more than twenty retrospectives have been dedicated to his person all over the world. In 1983 he directed Pelota, winner of several international awards. Olatz Gonzalez Abrisqueta is an anthropologist and professor at the University of the Basque Country. In 2005 she brought out Pelota vasca: un ritual, una estética, published in the USA in 2012.
