Aitor Gametxo, España, 2014, 60'

On reading the news about the incredible finding of the first map of Western Europe in Abauntz cave in Navarra, the filmmaker goes into the nearest town, Arraitz (Ultzama Valley), to trace another map with his own hands and those of others he encounters. It is a contemporary map which combines not to be missed festivities, daily rituals and future traditions. But, he soon realises that what he is making is not just one map. In reality, there are two. Or at least two.

Aitor Gametxo (Lekeitio, 1989) is an audiovisual technician and film maker. He studied audiovisual communication in Bilbao and Barcelona. In 2011, he did a Master’s degree in Creative Documentary at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and since then he has made works of non-fiction, either alone or in a group. After making the short films "La ciutat tipogràfica" (with Igone Arreitunandia), "Irudi mintzatuen hiztegi poetikoa" (with Maider Fernandez and Maria Elorza), “Dos fotogramas” (Two Frames/Stills), “Bere bizitzetako bat” (One of his Lives) and “Soinu galduen bila” (In Search of Lost Sounds), in 2014 he won the X-Films Project award, organised by the Punto de Vista International Documentary Film Festival. Through this award, in 2015 he made the feature-length documentary "El otro mapa de Abauntz” (The Other Map of Abauntz). In the same year, he was invited to take part in #Zinergentziak'15, a project organised between Territorios y Fronteras and Zinebi, to make the collective documentary "Distantziak" (Distances), together with Cristina Ezquerra, Maddi Barber and Jesus M. Palacios. At the same time, he worked as an audiovisual technician at Tabakalera and the CCCB.
