Bach is wonderful.

Although I prefer shostakovich.

But now the Soviets have sent him to prison.

Yes, but you know,

i don't support these methods.

But I can tease you, can't I?

Of course.


if you and I were together again, I...

Vasyl, I...

Look here, from the Danish reporter.

She was trying to smuggle this out.

I'll deal with it.

Thank you.

Come on.

Poor people.

Looks like fascists are winning positions.

They have snipers.

They've shot two of our men.

We'll rescue them.

Those two guys are history.

This fog is impossible.

Marta. Get back here.

Look, when I was in Ethiopia,

my interpreter tried to do something brave.

The newspaper turned its back on him.

He's in prison now.

They won't even pay for his lawyer.

What the hell do you wanna risk your life for?

Make the newspaper owners even richer?

Take the picture

that will turn the world around.

Marta, no! Come back here!

Come back here!

Are you out of your mind?


Don't do that!

It's dangerous!

Well, what about her?

She can't stay out there!


Marta, don't!

Help me.

Shit. Shit. Shit. Shit.



Do something.


Marta, leave it!

Go! Now!

What the hell were you thinking?

I don't know. What were you thinking?

That picture is important.

Publish it.

I put some Brandy in it.

Thank you.

Please. Eat.

Thank you so much.

Pretty good, huh?

- You don't want anything?

- Nyet.

Why don't you

become a fashion photographer?

Or sports?

I want my capa.

Robert capa is overrated.

Hemingway, too, isn't he?

Everybody is overrated, but not you.

I didn't say that.

You've had your glory moments.

Now leave room for us.

That was close.


It's coming back.

He was born in Pamplona-Iruña (Spain) and worked for many years as a creative interior designer and airbrushing specialist before moving into the audio-visual sector as a director specialized in Digital Animation. He worked for several years as a digital artist as well as participating in the design of several sets for various films. He then completed his education in Computer Generated Imaginary CGI in Madrid, while he took charge of editing the short film "Searching for the polar decline" and all its digital effects. Later he started working into a creative team dedicated to the creation of digital content for museums and multimedia shows, becoming director of several very successful audio-visual works. Thanks to that he got a very relevant post as he became responsible for conducting the special effects and digital archaeology recreations for museums in the Basque Country like the Oiasso Museum of the Romanization in Irun or the Pre-industrialization Museum in Legazpi among others. He became a freelance and worked with artist Javier Longobardo in the production of 3D musical videos with bands such as Ladytron, The Planets or MUM among others. He embarked on his first animation film "Gernika" along with the painter J.L. Zumeta which was released in 2012 on the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Gernika in the Victoria Eugenia Theatre during the celebration of the X Human Rights Film Festival in Donostia-San Sebastian. The film was also selected in numerous international film festivals and got several awards including the award for "Best Film on Disarmament" at the Um Film per la Paz Festival in Italy and the award for "Best Basque Short Film" at the Festival Cortada of Vitoria-Gasteiz. He also produced the exhibition "From Canvas to display” about his short film Gernika in Donostia-San Sebastián, which was widely acclaimed by the attending audience of over 4000 visitors. Nowadays he combines his work as a freelance in special effects for films with his expertise in videomapping creation.
