The film

Asier and I grew up together on the streets of Pamplona. After this we both went our separate ways – I went to Madrid, but he stayed in Pamplona and some time later joined ETA. After leaving prison having served his sentence, I took my camera with the intention of showing my friends in Madrid that, at least in the case of my friend, the stereotypical image of a ruthless terrorist did not correspond with the reality. My project however, soon proved difficult and the outcome was vastly different to my original expectations. My friend Asier was not somebody I could mould to my imaginary script, but a person with very strong ideas and convictions that didn’t always coincide with what I had originally expected.
