SSIFF - DONOSTIA ZINEMALDIA
Animation Documentaries Feature Film Short Films
Produced by Kowalski Films Icíar Bollaín will present Maixabel, starring
Blanca Portillo as the widow of the socialist leader murdered by ETA,
Juan Mari Jáuregui. Luis Tosar plays one of those involved in the killing in
a film recreating the restorative meetings advocated in 2001 as a result of the
so-called ‘vía Nanclares’ project, under which Maixabel Lasa agreed to meet her
husband’s assassins in prison.
Following its showing in the short film competition in the Orizzonti section of
Venice Festival, Zabaltegi-Tabakalera will screen Mikel Gurrea’s short film,
Heltzear, selected for the Kimuak catalogue in 2021 and produced by Irusoin.
