DIRECTOR: Asier Altuna Iza - SPAIN

A film about the passing of Basque rural culture, When A Tree Falls lyrically explores spirit of place, ancestry and the inevitability of change. Gaizka is the eldest son in the family, but refuses to take over the caserio – the farm that has been with the family for generations. His sister Amaia is the one who must deal with the protest from their stubborn, old-fashioned father. He insists that the farm represents a way of life and values that must be upheld. Amaia finds herself torn between tradition and her life in the modern world, but she cannot leave her old parents and grandmother to take care the farm by themselves. (103 mins.)

Filmography: Bertsolari (2011), Aupa Etxebeste! (2005)

A selection from Pragda’s Festival of New Spanish Cinema 2016, co-presented by SPAIN arts & culture and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport.
