Checkpoint Rock
Fermín Muguruza, Javier Corcuera

  • Synopsis
  • Cast & Crew
A journey through one of the places always under the world spotlight, yet about which we actually know very little. Who are its most representative musicians and how do they live? What do they think of the unique fate that has fallen upon them to live and how do they deal with it in their words and tunes? From the neon signs of Tel Aviv to the poverty and despair of the West Bank occupied territories and the enormous concentration camp now sitting on the Gaza Strip, Checkpoint Rock shares, with musicians of widely differing styles, travelling from village to village and checkpoint to checkpoint, a voyage that will change our view of this people in conflict.

Muguruza has been one of the most influential musicians on the Basque scene since the 80s, whether at the head of the groups Kortatu and Negu Gorriak or as a soloist, with a long list of collaborations. Corcuera, born in Lima, introduced himself with La espalda del mundo (2000), Critics’ Award at the San Sebastian International Festival. Later came La guerrilla de la memoria (2002) and Invierno en Bagdad, winner of awards at Malaga, Los Angeles and Montevideo. Checkpoint Rock closed the San Sebastian Human Rights Film Festival in 2009.
