This s a retrospective by the film director and scriptwriter José Julián Bakedano which surveys five decades of Basque cinema through more than 30 titles, primarily feature films produced in Basque, the outcome of the efforts of five generations of filmmakers. The series, which begins in 1968 with the seminal film Ama Lur and ends with Errementari, shows different genres ranging from documentaries to dramas, thrillers and comedies, a wide range of styles which shed light on the evolution of film production in the Basque Country.

Ama Lur / Tierra Madre (Néstor Basterretxea and Fernando Larruquert, 1968)

Documentary produced through crowdfunding which is regarded as a seminal work in what is known as "Basque cinema". It is a lyrical re-creation of the Basque Country in all its facets: ethnic, historical, territorial and artistic.

Ciclo de Cortometrajes Anticine (Javier Aguirre, 1967-1970)

Aguirre inquires into the boundaries of the cinematographic language in eight short films which are one of the most radical examples of Spanish experimental film.

20/01/2019, 17.30h and 19.30h

La casa sin fronteras (Pedro Olea, 1972)

This is a Kafkaesque horror story set primarily in Bilbao. A naive young man arrives in the capital of Bizkaia and is captured by a secret society called the "House without Frontiers". However, he falls in the hands of a spy ring which leads him to confront the organisation.

El espíritu de la colmena (Víctor Erice, 1973)

This is the first feature film by Víctor Erice, the winner of the Golden Shell at the San Sebastián Film Festival. It is a post-war story which reflects the frustrations of a group of adults and the story of two girls who dream about the monster Frankenstein, which they saw in a mobile cinema.

Ikuzka 3' (Antton Merikaetxeberria, 1979) and Axut (Jose Mari Zabala, 1976)

This is the first celluloid film by the experimental artist Jose Mari Zabala. Starting with an iconography which mixes the traditional and the modern (priests, witches, executives, shepherds, Carlists, thieves, soldiers, dwarves, etc.) and a soundtrack made up of both music and sound, Zabala composes a "metaphysical circus" which poetically and comically alludes to certain aspects of life in the Basque Country.

Curated by Guadalupe Echevarría, one of the pioneers in studying, programming and disseminating audiovisual practices in Spain, this series, which is part of the programming of the International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Bilbao (ZINEBI), offers a snapshot of creative video in the Basque Country through a selection of 16 pieces made between 1982 and 2017 and chronologically grouped into three sessions. The first offers a sample of the incipient videographic production in the Basque country in the late 1980s and early 1990s, while the second and third offer a survey of some of the proposals by the youngest creators made in the new millennium.
