    ARANTZAZU-1 – Mikel Serrato Gil

    Arantzazu 36 zm, 5 mende, herri 1 Arantzazu 36 cm, 5 siglos, 1 pueblo

    Pello Sarasua

    The Franciscans have been in Arantzazu for more than 500 years. From their spirituality, they have always had a close relationship with the people. They have also played an important role in the Basque socio-cultural construction and have left us a valuable treasure that we have internalized and consider very much our own. It is necessary to make it known, since it is part of our history and of our being. Arantzazu would not be what it is today without the Basque people, and the Basque people would not be the same without Arantzazu.

    Manolo Kabezabolo (Si todavía te kedan dientes es ke no estuviste ahí)

    José Alberto Andrés Lacasta

    Manuel Méndez "Manolo Kabezabolo" is the last punk musician who has transcended space and time becoming a counter-cultural phenomenon with more than 40 years of artistic career, and a referent character of the undeground. His difficult and hilarious youth made him take the leap into squatting philosophy, insumision, the street, the punk’ life style... and also drugs, mental illness and psychiatrits. In spite of everything, his state of serene maturity and his unbribable, combative, uncritical spirit are still intact and with his guitar sharpened.

    Pizti bat agian Somewhat Wild

    Ainhoa Gutiérrez del Pozo, Olatz González Abrisketa

    A shot breaks the dusk. Hunters with GPS screens follow their dogs into the forest, and the night catches up with them. Elsewhere, Maina counts her sheep daily. The wolf has been sighted nearby. Adam, fascinated by this apparition, goes out to look for it with his camera, taking advantage of the full moon. Everyone relates to the animal in their own way, but they agree on one thing: they all want to see without being seen.
