  • Cast & Crew

This work by the filmmaker from San Sebastian, Antxon Ezeiza (1935-2011) put an end to the project Ikuska, a series of 20 documentary shorts in the Basque language on themes always related to the Basque Country produced between 1978 and 1984.

Antxon Ezeiza (1935-2011) filmed his first documentaries in collaboration with Elías Querejeta, A través de San Sebastián (1960) and A través del fútbol (1962), and his first feature, El próximo otoño, in 1963. Considered to be one of the most important figures of the so-called Nuevo Cine Español, he directed enormously emblematic titles including El último encuentro (1967), De cuerpo presente (1967) and Las secretas intenciones (1970). He also directed the films Mina, tiempo de libertad (1976), El complot mongol (1978), Ke arteko egunak (Days of Smoke, 1990), the first film in the Basque language ever to be presented at the San Sebastian Festival and at a category A event to boot, and Felicidades Tovarich (1995). After several years in exile and his return to the Basque Country in 1977, he centered his efforts on laying the foundations for an authentic Basque cinematography. He was one of the leading promoters of Ikuska, a project of 20 short films about the Basque Country shot in Basque. He himself directed some of them, like Ikuska 20, which closes the series and will be screened at the Velodrome. Ezeiza had a long relationship with the San Sebastian Festival, first of all as a member of its Steering Committee from 1978 until 1980, as Selection Coordinator and member of the Board from 1984 to 1986, and as a contributor in 1990. In 2003, at the 51st edition of the San Sebastian Festival, Ezeiza received the Ama Lur life achievement award.
