dir. Olatz González Abrisketa & Jørgen Leth
Q&A with Olatz Gonzalez @ 3:40pm
“The ball is a living being. Each is different from the rest and you have to listen properly to recognize them.” Pelota II goes into one of the best kept secrets of this sport: the right selection of balls for every game. Having as reference Jørgen Leth’s documentary “Pelota” (1983); Olatz González Abrisketa aims to bring the aesthetics of Leth to the radical nature of ethnographic detail, making the final film about what it is considered the classic ritual of Basque culture.
