Spanish punks are back in Glasgow. And this is a special one folks, pencil doon:
For our last night of the year CinemaAttic focuses on shorts from Basque Country with the programme Kimuak: Best of the Basques.
Every spring, Basque leader distribution platform KIMUAK selects the best from Basque short film scene to create an annual collection with the most talented, original and qualified proposals produced within Basque Country.
In this year's selection we can find established directors returning to tell stories in short format, that is the case of Mikel Rueda Sasieta, Kepa Sojo, Jose Mari Goenaga Balerdi Balerdi and Jon Garaño.
Thanks to CinemaAttic's collaboration in recent years with both KIMUAK, Basque Filmoteque and Institut basque Etxepare, for our December feature we are excited to bring the KIMUAK programme in Scotland.
The importance of an initiative like Kimuak goes beyond the mere work of selecting the best Basque short films of the year. School for film directors. A way station towards feature films. A genre by itself, to which even successful directors return.
Basics of Basque:
Kaixo — Hello
Agur — Goodbye
Eskerrik asko — Thank You
Kimuak — Sprout (as in blooming)
See you at the movies!
