Izaro is a documentary/essay which updates a fragmented portrait of the identity, history and legacy of Izaro Island until its diaspora. The name ‘Izaro’ has germinated in practices of power, in legal claims to the Island ownership, in the shape of tile-throwing fiestas, in the film production company Ízaro Films Presenta, with its own lookout point, Windsor Tower, in the proper names of both women and men and in a state-of-the-art tuna fishing boat built in the Bermeo shipyards, fishing in waters of the Indian Ocean flying the flag of the Seychelles.

BIOGRAPHY

Since the '90s, the multidisciplinary artist Txuspo Poyo has followed a certain methodology of process to sketch juxtaposed stories based on the investigation and analysis of certain generational events in hybrid crossovers, with a very highly pronounced sense of editing. The proposals have generated tales whose tension lies in crossed images. Plots where historical and unfinished remnants come together, alongside fragments of cultural imagery, both collective and individual, captured from history, the world of cinema, architecture and sci-fi literature.
