2015 EDITION POSTER - © Chris Zielecki
The Georgian filmmaker, Otar Iosseliani, will twice be in the limelight at the 9th edition of the Punto de Vista Festival. He will be the focus of a cycle, within the Special Sessions, in which five films have been programmed: the feature films And Then There Was Light and A Little Monastery in Tuscany; and the short films Tudzhi, Georgian Ancient Songs, and Song About a Flower. Furthermore, Iosseliani will form part of the Chez les Basques retrospective, on films shot in the French Basque Country, where the film Euskadi Été 1982 is set.
The Basque filmmaker, Aitor Gametxo, will present the world première of his film, El otro mapa de Abauntz, produced by the Punto de Vista Festival within the framework of the X Films Project. It will be screened on Saturday 14th February at 8pm in the Gola Hall at Baluarte.
Who said film is made with light? On 17th December 2012, the filmmaker, Oskar Alegria, began this collection of films on darkness in a corner of the world called Artazu. Two years later, the general film resulting from all of them, made by 84 different hands and lasting three hours, is being premiered at the 2015 edition of Punto de Vista.
The Scottish poet and filmmaker, Margaret Tait, will be the focus of the ninth edition of the Punto de Vista collection with a volume that includes seven cinematographic essays and 32 poems translated from English for the first time. The book entitled Hen Means Honey. Chosen poems and essays about cinema by Margaret Tait presents a selection of all her collections of poems and also adds her writings on film with reflections on cinematographic time, the works of Rossellini or her ideas on independent and low budget film.
