About Oteiza

A verse, a border sculpture, a geographical journey, the Apostles, a house… are some of the  sources of inspiration of the filmmakers in these first sessions devoted to the sculptor-poet-filmmaker… to the artist, in one word, Jorge Oteiza. Having stolen the title from our festival mentor, Jean Vigo, this About intends to be a heartfelt tribute and demonstration of how a filmmaker like Oteiza, in spite of not having any films of his own, has not stopped provoking it in others. Here, we are not dealing with the documentaries that have been made on him and his work. It is not a film that explains his life and miracles, but the film that emerges from him to establish particular works by each author, works derived from seven   different outlooks based on the Oteiza universe but not necessarily remaining with him. This is Oteiza’s film as a muse, divided into two sessions, personal and free film, which he undoubtedly also dreamt of making.
