What you can cook with some wood, ice, stone and two amazing musicians?

The answer is a travelogue that brings you from the Sahara to Lapland. A diverse group of ethnic minorities share the same passion – music – and two amazingly talented musicians from Basque country, bring them together.

This resulted in the award-winning feature documentary NOMADÄK TX (89′, 2006) by Pablo Iraburu, Harkaitz Martinez de San Vicente and Igor Otxoa.

We also showed the short animation doc: I AM THE WALRUS (Josh Raskin, USA, 5′, 2008): In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrators James Braithwaite and Alex Kurina have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack and the short animation ERNESTO (6’53”, 20911, UK, Corinne Ladeinde): Seven Year old Ernesto feels left out when he realises he is the only kid in school with a full set of milk teeth. When his efforts to fit in fail, Ernesto resorts to drastic measures to get rid of them, but his teeth have other plans..

Amy was  giving a workshop on Dreams.

This workshop gave the audience a profound engagement with her latest film The Edge of Dreaming.

Quadrangle Film Festival 2011

At the Quadrangle Film Festival documentary filmmakers get together for a weekend to watch films and share ideas away from the commercial pressures of broadcast television and pitching competitions. It’s a retreat experience for the documentary old guard, the student vanguard, and everyone in between.

We put up a tent with screenings of “Lost gems”, documentaries that were precious to us but still unknown to most.
