[Αναμνήσεις από τις περσινές Ημέρες Ανεξαρτησίας]

Earlier this year I was president of the jury at FICUNAM, a new film festival in Mexico City, that awarded its best feature prize to this beautiful and experimental Basque film by José María de Orbe. (The other jurors were Sergei Dvortsevoy, Emmanuel Burdeau, Nicolás Echevarría, and Roberto Fiesco Trejo.) Now it’s out with English subtitles on an attractive DVD released in Spain by Karma Films, along with a booklet (and another film, Aita, carta al hijo, a shorter version of the feature without the dialogue scenes).
