Termites can also grow in film schools. Termites that eat away the boundaries of the documentary, that use what they find on the edges of reality to create something new, to tell it another way.
In 2021, Sara Domínguez López, Luis Morla and Alberto Ruiz made No conozco la historia del fuego as their final project for the diploma in documentary film at ECAM. Named after a verse by Alejandra Pizarnik, the film is surprising precisely because it deals with time suspended in a forest and the stay or fleeting passage through it of some young immigrants; with the relations between the young people and between them and the forest.
In 2022 the Dutch director Marieke Elzerman made La voz rosa as a creative project at the Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola. In it she portrays a young foreign teacher being treated in San Sebastián for her damaged voice. In this process, she goes about the city having revealing encounters with other women who devote their time to her, who show her what they do with their time, helping, sometimes inadvertently, a young teacher to get her voice back.
