Focus: Andrei Tarkovsky
According to the British critic Frank Kermode, one of the basic conditions for a work to reach the "classic" category is the degree of "patience", or timelessness, that the text has. That is to say, the ability for successive generations, beyond the author's contemporaries, to take interest in the text and find reasons for identification and interpretation therein. That reflection is relevant when considering a filmmaker like Andréi Tarkovski, whose work has not ceased to be shown on a regular basis in cinemas around the world since he passed away in 1986.

I think of a tiger. A sparkling fire. A lion. A labyrinth. The origin of stories. How Argentinian cinema became in the late 90’s a place where stories, images and sounds took a new form. How that new cinema amazed film festivals around the world, in the same way as a tiger, a fire, a lion looking at the camera could amaze us. Now, the primary question: Where did all this come from?

Focus: Lucrecia Martel
This Focus could be called “Waiting for Zama”. Because it has been almost ten years since the last film by Lucrecia Martel. During this time, she went from being a young, little-known director who surprised Berlin with her directorial début -and established a new line to be followed in Argentine cinema-, to becoming a cult director with her own signature style in the international independent film circuit.

A journey through orphan films, amateur films and the concept of authorship
EQZE will open up its facilities and give it the form of a gallery hall to host an anthological exhibition of anonymous, orphan and amateur films throughout the history of cinema. The purpose of the project is to identify this "hidden side of cinema" made up of home and amateur films, films with no clear authorship and films that have been abandoned, are incomplete, silenced or not designed for public viewing, shedding light on the material, commercial, cultural and historical reasons that lead to a film being forgotten with no apparent authorship.

International seminar on amateur films and the concept of authorship
Based around the idea of anonymity and the exploration of film archives from this point of view, Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola has convened an international seminar on October 26, 27 and 28 on the amateur cinema, films “without names” and the concept of authorship. The seminar, which is open to the general public, will bring together specialists, curators, visual artists, filmmakers and academics working on orphan films and secrets of the archives. All of the sessions are designed as mixed sessions and illustrated lectures with short screenings.
