Year1969 Duration3 min. DirectorJorge Oteiza

This is another film from Oteiza’s archive that escapes from the family register and has a film intention. Oteiza uses his camera to record his frieze of the 14 Apostles in Aranzazu (Gipuzkoa), probably in the year in which it was installed in 1969, following the controversy in which they were left forgotten in a ditch for a dozen. That’s why this Oteiza with his camera in hand is a victorious Oteiza who looks from one side to the other of the work that has now been installed. Without resting his eyes, he shows us the cavities of all of them with his camera that is as nervous as he is, moving up to the sky to include the idea that everything is seen from above. There are also some shots in which he approaches the Basilica in a car, with his camera hanging out of the window, like a small road movie where nothing is still.
