International premiere

BRANKA is born: and is plagued with an uncertain future.

Will it have been in vain? Will a young person die? We, the creators, cannot answer these questions.

As BRANKA is the son of the Basque Country, it will serve the Basque people: this is its main objective.

Prologue to the first edition of BRANKA (PROA), Basque Socialist Magazine.
(1966 – 1971) 14 copies.

Mikel Zatarain

Mikel Zatarain Donostia - San Sebastián, 1983

Mikel ZatarainAfter giving up his engineering studies, he moved to Barcelona in 2006 to focus on film language, where he graduated in Film Direction from CECC (Film Studies Centre of Catalonia). Regularly seen at La Filmoteca de Cataluña, he went on to study a Master in Documentary of Creation at the UPF, where his teachers included directors and producers of the likes of Serguei Dvortsevoy, José Luis Guerín, Marta Andreu or Thierry Garrel.

In February 2011, he made his debut with the short film, Lanbroa, within the most radical and interesting section of the Punto de Vista Festival, The Central Region.

In February 2012, he attended the 10th Berlinale Talent Campus and in March, he premiered his short film, Aztarnak, at the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria International Film Festival.
